- Perth housewife Carolina McCauley puts vegetables in her dishwasher
- Mom’s fans were divided over the hack and many said it was “absurd”

A home-proud mom is divided after claiming people should use their dishwashers to clean everything from toys to fruits and vegetables.
Carolina McCauley is known for her handy household tips, but even some of her most loyal fans argue that the most recent video goes too far.
In the video, the Perth-based mother puts toys, cleaning sponges and vegetables in her dishwasher.
“They come out spotless,” she revealed, showing a shiny piece of celery.
But a dishwasher full of apples, carrots, courgettes and children’s toys turned out to be a big step too far for many.
‘No madam. I like your page, but we don’t put food in the dishwasher,” said one woman, who got 724 likes.

When people run out of content to post. It’s also worrying because there are people who are so ignorant or simple-minded that they might follow this blindly,” said another woman.
One woman noted that her dishwasher cleans at over 100°C, which would spoil most fruits and vegetables.
Others feared the popular cleaner would run her dishwasher before she filled it properly.

As well as her sponges and dishcloths – but everyone wanted to talk about the veggies
“We’re supposed to be saving the environment and here you run an empty dishwasher for likes,” said one woman.
But some said the idea of putting vegetables through a cleaning cycle wasn’t as far-fetched as it seemed.
“Many restaurants throw their baking potatoes through the dishwasher to wash them before baking,” said one woman.
Most people agreed that it was better to rinse their vegetables under the tap or soak them in the sink.
