I put boards in the dishwasher, all the time. I don't normally use
detergent, but if I do, I use just a *tiny* amount of liquid. Too much
and your dishwasher will foam at the mouth. I also don't use any dry
cycles. I blot the board dry when it's done, usually smacking it
against a towel to help knock any water out from under chips, or in
connectors, then I let it air dry.
