I also think it is a good idea experimenting with this.
But I would use a separate dishwasher for it.
Just like the chemistry rooms in schools use a dedicated dishwasher for 
cleaning test tubes, measuring tubes, flasks, etc.

The risk is, that a little bit of some rather toxic will be passed on to 
you and others through your dishwasher.
