Friday's Stupid Thread - Cleaning Your Dishes

Fri Apr 13, 2007 5:58 pm

So it appears that I clean my dishes using a Spontex (r) sponge and some apple-flavored dishwashing liquid.
What do you use ?

I'm concerned that you deemed it necessary to taste your dishwashing liquid. Perhaps you mean apple scented?

Dishwasher. Life is too short. When we moved into our new unit, there wasn't a dishwasher. Within 2 weeks there was. It leap frogged the 'essentials' list for a new home. If the next place I buy doesnt have a dishwasher, it will by the time I move in.

Actually, in our current climate of drought, a dishwasher is essential in saving water.

For most a dishwasher, but if something says Not Dishwasher Safe, then I drag out the old dish soap and draining board, dust 'em off, and get to work.

All the smal stuff get's the dishwasher. Large stuff like pots and pans get the sink.

My cleaner is away for 2 months so I've resorted to getting dirty items out of the sink and cleaning them as I need them. I've become such a lazy b*****d!

Dishwashers?! Buncha wusses... Big grin

I use a Scotch sponge and a solid dish soap bar.

Uphill both ways, in -30 temps, in summer!

Dishwasher here as well - though the cats seem to willing to do the job if I would just let them on the counter. . .

Snow? WTF is that? I get to enjoy lovely spring weather year-round, thankyouverymuch.  Silly

Besides, it's not like I need a dishwasher machine anyway -- that's what siblings are for.  mischievous

I use Orange scented Dawn Ultra with a two sided sponge (coarse on one side, soft on the other) or a medium bristled dish brush. I wash with lots of hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly under lukewarm water, then leave to drip dry.

Carmenlu....hey, I remember those days!!! lol The only time my sisters and I got into a fight was when we were trying to decide who would wash and who would dry the dishes.

I have a dishwasher....and for all those other items that don't go into a dishwasher I use Sunlight and a J-Cloth!!!

Parents use a dishwasher at home though.

I have a dishwasher in my house, but I never use it. I just clean each dish/glass/utensil/cookery right after use. I'm the only one living here, so how many dishes can I go through. I never let any dishes pile up in the sink. When I used to use one, I always scrubbed the food off before going in becuase just washing a food-caked dish came out with marginal results.

I clean my dishes with Palmolive dishwashing liquid (Oxy Plus variant) and a good dishwashing sponge. Works for me!  cool

As I'm moving out soon, my dishwasher days may soon be over...  cry 

Until then, I love my parents' Miele dishwasher...  cloudnine
