Immediately upon emptying my dishwasher I put the detergent in the cup. That way if the cup is closed, the dishes are dirty. I use the little packets and they don't dry out. Saves a lot of "are the dishes clean or dirty".

What I do is: If the dishes are dirty, leave the door unlocked and if clean keep it locked. If I only need to grab one clean item and not enough time to empty the whole dishwasher, I lock it back up again ;-) I live alone so that's easy to do but if more than one lives in the home, the soap is a great idea because not everyone remembers to follow the rules ;-) LOL!
What a great idea, too, for keeping the cup dry - I hate it when the soap get "clumpy" - gonna try this @ my house, too! thx
