Utensils in dishwasher, handles up or down???
I've always put my utensils with handles down...I just loaded the utensil holder handles up and they don't fit right..I'm still with handles down. I get that when you grab a utensil, your're grabbing the part those goes in your mouth or the part you use, but I'm assuming your hands are cleaning when grabbing.
DD made a comment the other day when she noticed we grab the utensils by the mouth end...this covid 19 has triggered her OCD/germ worry.
How about you, handles up or down?
