Oh, those things drive me crazy too! Our d/w has its end prongs really close to the basket edge, so I can jam the lids in there and they stay. For the containers, I just have to try to weight them down with other items - steamer basket from cooking pots, lids from cooking pots, heavier (real) plates... whatever I can find.
I remember seeing, years ago, an elastic "net"; it probably was at some marine store, since it's been about that amount of time since I saw it. I have no idea what the intended application was. But it occurs to me that would be a great thing, stretched over the offending items in the d/w and clipped to the edges of the shelf. I may have to start checking marine companies online again to see if I can find it!
Good luck. All my stuff comes out flipped over and full of dirty wash water too.
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
