Question of the Day – During a Storm do you Store Valuables in Your Dishwasher?
FLORIDA, HOUSTON and ELSEWHERE! LOOKING FOR IDEAS OF WHERE TO STORE YOUR IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS?
Your dishwasher can be a waterproof safe, sealed to keep water in, and secured to cabinets, under a granite countertop, so it's more likely to survive a storm, so it should do just fine.
Just make sure all your dishes are taken out before loading up important documents or belongings.
Possible problems could arise if your house is in a low-lying neighborhood where floods are prone. If your house is flooded, so is your dishwasher.
Before leaving unplug your dishwasher, you don’t was hot electrical current nearby and in the unlikely event the dishwasher accidentally turns on.
