(Is it tinfoil or is it aluminum foil?) That's a totally different conversation. There seem to be life hacks every where. We all love a good life hack.

I believe I saw this in TikTok. Yes, it's good for somethings.

This life hack is one for the kitchen. The key spot in the house and something, a lot of use every day. The dishwasher, our dishwasher is running almost every day. My Nana would say, hand-wash those dishes, she's right. But, I love the dishwasher, sorry Nana.

So, a question for you - Do you rinse your plates before you put them in your dishwasher? Or do you keep all the food on the plate when you put them in the dishwasher? I love the spray power spray, I usually rinse them first.

I always put the silverware point up, my husband puts them down. These are always the arguments in our home. Then putting the dishes and glasses away, that's a whole other argument, ok moving on.

Why should New Jerseyans add Tinfoil to their Dishwasher?

This life hack, which I've seen on TikTok, could help some of the arguments in your house, maybe? Do you want your silverware shiny? Are you someone that uses pods or liquid detergent? This just might help you.

**Let's note I did not try this, but maybe you have.** Does this really work?

According to the life hack from TikTok, you can elevate the shininess by adding a small ball of crumpled up aluminum foil in your dishwasher basket for the silverware.

Reader's Digest got great results and they explain how it works. The ball isn’t acting as a scrubbing agent, but the chemicals in your dish detergent produces a chemical reaction with the foil which helps remove the grime and tarnish from your silverware.

Let me know if it works for you. I'm not sure because of chemicals in tinfoil? But, let me know if you tried it.
