Trivia: Dishes in soap
All my life I have put dishes (plates) in the dishwasher facing in. (I've never seen it done any other way.) I just now tried putting them in facing out, however, and discovered that not only do the stays hold bowls and plates in an upright position better this way -- they don't careen into the side like they careen into the center -- but the center spout has much greater freedom to spray and wash the dishes in the upper tray. I don't know why I didn't think of this earlier!
