I've never tried using a dishwasher since i'd assume that it would wreck the bowls. What I do is empty out all the tobacco and rinse with lot water. Next I but the bowl in a cup and cover it with rubbing alcohol, cover it with cling wrap and let it set for a couple of hours. Finally I take out of the alcohol and let it sit in warm water for about an hour before letting it dry. only use ceramic bowls rather then clay. Don't do what I suggested for clay. Instead just pick the clay bowl after about 10 sessions. The soak method is something I do every 10 sessions or so.
