Attack of the Killer Dishwasher

Attack of The Killer Dishwasher

According to Elsevier, ‘the world’s leading publisher of science and health information’, your dishwasher is trying to kill you. Please note: this is the most boring thing you’re ever likely to read.

If I were you I’d check out the always excellent Register‘s take on it:


“The next time we approach our (or any) dishwasher we shall be clad in a full positive-pressure flameproof atmosphere suit. Having taken the precaution of lobbing a lit Molotov cocktail into the infested machine and slamming the door – to temporarily stun the hive within – we shall rip the entire unit from its attachments and abandon it in an unpopulated area pending the arrival of military forces who can render it safe from a distance using thermobaric warheads.”


I’m personally willing to bet that a run your dishwasher through with a sachet of limescale and detergent remover, or maybe a bit of dishwasher magic (an actual product!), and you’ll probably be safe from the pathogens looking to harvest your body. At least for a month or so.
