Does washing clothes in a dishwasher work?
I wouldn’t recomend it: You can only use the detergent recomended for dishwashers and it’s pretty strong. You could ruin the color if not the fabric itself. If any part of the clothing falls thru the basket you could ruin the arms that spray the water, ruin the machine , possibly the clothes and if it should start a fire—you’d be in bigger trouble. Take the clothes to a laundromat and avoid all the trouble!
