Emily in Buffalo, New York

I am starting to have black mold growing on otherwise clean dishes. The last month or so I have thrown away all of my daughter’s sippy cups, a few plastic kids cups, and some plastic bowls because when i pull them out of my clean dishwasher they have mold on them. I do not let my dishes sit in the dishwasher more than a couple hours so they cool down a little so I don’t know why this is happening. I rinse most of my dishes and my dishwasher is run at least every other day if not more.

Questions:

Why is this happening, and does anyone have any advice on how to stop this from happening?
