A consumer advocacy group in Australia has found that it's possible to wash more items in your dishwasher than just kitchenware.

Choice consumer group has found that Lego, combs and hairbrushes, and even some computer keyboards can be sanitised in the dishwasher.

Combs and hairbrushes are suitable, as long as they don't have wooden handles, it claims.

Lego can also be placed on the top shelf of your dishwasher in a laundry bag, according to Choice.

Some computer keyboards and computer mice are designed to be dishwasher safe. These keyboards and mice are sealed and IP68 rated, which means they are water- and dust-resistant.
