People are only just realising the correct way to load a dishwasher and their minds are blown | The Sun

FOR those lucky enough to have a dishwasher, you’ve come to the right place.

It turns out that we’ve been loading our dishwashers all wrong.

One woman, Anna Lanier, also known on TikTok as the ‘CEO of Randomness’, has revealed that many people have been loading their dishwasher incorrectly and in fact, a simple technique means that your mugs will not collect any water. 

Anna has 386k followers and 14.4million likes on the video sharing platform and was left stunned when she realised the clever loading method. 

She uploaded her video to social media with the caption ‘I was always told to do it straight, nice and neat and it never was the right way lol’.
