3. Should you open the dishwasher door right after it’s finished?

Yes, that would be the best thing to do. When your dishwasher is done with its cycle, open the door a little bit so there’s a crack. That way, the excess moisture and steam can find its way out and your dishes will dry more quickly. That way, you’ll be able to put away the clean dishes sooner as well.
