I learned this trick from my Mother-in-law during a recent visit.

Dilute your container of concentrated liquid dish soap with at least a quarter cup of bleach. It’s not strong enough to ruin your clothing, but more than strong enough to provide extra sterilizing, grease cutting, and rinse aid support. I noticed the hand-washed dishes were looking extra great whenever one of us did them. I asked her what she did and this was it.
