You definitely could, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should. Dishwasher tablets are powerful cleaners, but they’re made to work in tiny spaces, aka your dishwasher, and only cover a small surface area.
But if the in-laws are coming for the weekend and you’ve suddenly run out of bathroom cleaner, head to the kitchen, and grab your bag of dishwasher tabs.

Oven racks get really gross. It’s a fact of life that the minute the oven door closes, those crusty racks magically disappear from your mind until the next time you pop open the oven and see the disaster lurking inside. We’ve got an easy method to clean your oven racks with dishwasher tablets. It might sound a little strange, but trust us — it works.
Take your racks out of the oven, and wrap them in foil. Yes, foil. Place an old towel on the bottom of your bathtub to protect the surface, then place the wrapped racks on top. Toss in a couple of dishwasher cleaning tablets, and cover the racks with hot water. Let ‘em soak overnight, and in the morning, unwrap your racks and give them a good wipe down with a microfiber scrubber. Rinse, dry, and replace.
Did you know you can clean your oven door with dishwasher tabs, too? Just dissolve one of your dish pods in a cup of warm water, and dip a microfiber cloth or scrub brush, in the soapy liquid. Scrub the glass and door, then wipe it down with a damp cloth. Done!
Generally, cleaners are made for specific purposes, and the ingredients in certain products could have dire consequences for surfaces and materials those ingredients aren’t intended for. What we’re saying is, the stuff in dishwasher pods that gets your plates and bowls clean is too harsh for your band tees and Lululemon leggings.
What dishwasher tablets can do is clean the drum of your washing machine. After you’ve finished doing a load of laundry and your washing machine is empty, toss in a dishwasher tab and set it to a hot cycle. All the dirt and grime hanging out in your washing machine will get pulled out and rinsed away, leaving your washer sparkly clean and ready for another load of laundry.
