Ever wondered how dishwashers really get your dishes sparkling clean? A YouTube channel called Warped Perception actually put a GoPro and 360-degree camera in a dishwasher as it went through a cycle to get answers.
Matt Mikka, who hosts the YouTube channel, wanted to document an entire cleaning cycle. He was curious about how it all worked, but was particularly interested in how the detergent is dispensed, because that̵
Mikka bought a dishwasher and hooked it up in his workshop. Then he places the GoPro on the back of the top shelf and the Insta 360 camera in the center of the bottom shelf (along with a lamp). While the cycle is running, the cameras show the individual processes within the full cycle, including the soap being dispensed. At the end, Mikka even uses a thermal camera to see how hot the dishwasher gets during the drying process.
While the end result isn’t exactly shocking, it’s nice to have a picture of the process that many of us take for granted in our daily lives. And let’s be honest – it’s pretty rewarding to watch the gunk fall off those plates and slowly reveal their shiny, clean finish!
