Quantcast

Thanksgiving clean up

Me: Eat. Clear table. Load dishes, glasses, utensils, and serving plates into dishwasher. Pour dust type soap into place allotted for dust type soap. Close dishwasher door, start cycle, go to bed. Get up the next morning, go downstairs, empty sparkling clean contents of dishwasher, replace contents into cabinets, go about my day.

Others: Eat. Clear table. Rinse dishes under kitchen faucet with hot water running full blast for what seems like 20 minutes. Load dishes, glasses, utensils, and serving plates into dishwasher. Pour dust type soap into place allotted for the dust type soap. Close dishwasher door, start cycle, go to bed. Get up the next morning, go downstairs, empty sparkling clean contents of dishwasher, replace contents into cabinets, go about your day.

The difference between me and others? I don't rinse before I load. Why? Well, would you hand wash your car at home before taking it to an automatic car wash? Would you mow your lawn (I mow my own lawn, but if you have lawn care people), an hour before your lawn care people come do it? I wouldn't. And I know I'm not the brightest gimlet glass in the china closet, but I spent $550 on a dishwasher and I'll be Gol danged to hang if I'm going to prewash my dishes before I load them into it.

Course that's just me. I don't know, maybe you bought the dishwasher that advertised, "New Stainless Quiet Fast DW 515 Cleans Dishes ... Just About." Reminds me of the chainsaw I bought that advertised, "Cuts Down Giant Trees ... Almost." What about the sexual performance enhancement pill that boasts, "Guaranteed To Make You Very Appreciative Of Your Partner, Beyond That, You're On Your Own."

I'm absolutely positive most of you are reading this thinking "No, no, no, you have to rinse them before you put them in the dishwasher." Well I say, no, no, no, you don't. I've checked. I always load crud filled plates and utensils in the dishwasher without rinsing them first, and they always come out perfectly dry and sparkling clean. They do, period.
