Household dishwashers generally are safe to use if the water reaches a final rinse temperature of at least 150° Fahrenheit or if the dishwasher has a sanitizing cycle.
To wash dishes by hand:
- Wash and rinse the dishes as you normally would using hot water
- In a separate basin, add 1 teaspoon of unscented household liquid bleach for each gallon of warm water
- Soak the rinsed dishes in the water for at least 1 minute
- Let the dishes air dry completely
