Many dish detergents contain chemicals which may react with chlorine bleach. Ammonia would be one example. Bleach should not be added to the wash water ever. Bleach should be added at a rate of one teaspoon per gallon of water, to the rinse water, not the wash water. This is standard in restaurants across the U.S.

Dirt and dish soap neutralize bleach and make it ineffective as a sanitizer. This is why dishes must first be washed and rinsed before being submerged in a bleach solution and air dried. Air drying is required to ensure bleach has a sufficient contact time to kill germs.
