A dishwasher is a mechanical device for cleaning used dishes which is becoming a common household item.

It cleans by spraying hot water, typically between 55-75 °C at the dishes, with lower temperatures used for delicate items. A mix of water and detergent is blasted on the dishes. Once the wash is finished, the water is drained, more hot water is pumped in for a rinse cycle. After the rinse cycle the water is drained and a heating element in the bottom of the tub heats the air to dry the dishes. Sometimes a rinse aid is used to eliminate water spots for streak-free dishes.
