I have a friend who was (still is I believe) a major Apple and Mac 
consultant in the NYC area.    I remember he used to have is bath tub 
filled with Apple ][ and Mac cases to let them soak in cleaning solution 
for several hours (sometimes overnight) and then he'd rinse them down 
and clean them off.     So seeing stuff go through the dishwasher is not 
surprising, the IMPORTANT thing is, DO NOT DO HEATED DRYING on the 
dishwasher cycle, otherwise the heat with bend and warp the plastic 
casings.  (Does a mean job of destroying plastic forks and spoons, so I 
would assume it would be no less damaging to computer plastics)
