Subject: Sanitizing in the dishwasher?

Greetings. I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried sanitizing in.. their
dishwasher!? I've contemplated running it empty a round or two on rinse to
clean it out, then running my equipment through using sanitizing agent instead
of dishwasher detergent. Does this seem sound? I can hardly fit my fermenters
in my sink, and the dishwasher would run a lot hotter than I can clean by hand.
Comments? Thanks in advance..

Na Zdorovia,

Andy Wilcox <> made some comments about
this in HOMEBREW Digest #312, Wed 29 November 1989. I would
offer one caveat: if you are sanitizing bottles, beware of
labels coming loose and clogging the plumbing. (more of a
problem with foreign bottles than domestic ones) Otherwise, it
worked fine the one time I tried it.
