why do plastic containers not get dry in the dishwasher?
Posted on 2004-08-29
I often put Rubbermaid and Tupperware plastic containers through my dishwasher (standard cycle with heated dry), and even though the ceramic dishes and steel flatware come out completely dry, the plastic still needs to be dried by hand or air dried. Why would this be? What is it about plastic that causes it to dry so slowly, even under heat?
