1 A Study of Dish Washing Practices on Thu Jan 12 2017, 18:20

Recently, the McDanger's had the incredible misfortune of a very loud clanking sound coming from the dishwasher before it eventually shuddered to a complete halt. This displeased Mrs McDanger greatly. It didn't bother me much because I quite enjoy doing them by hand and if I stare out of the kitchen window long enough I'll see the occasional gray squirrel going about its business.


Well, one evening as I stood washing the plates in a counter-clockwise direction, Mrs McDanger, visibly irritated by my insistence that she dry them with a tea towel instead of letting them air dry, muttered 'why don't you wash the dishes the normal way?'. Now I was aggravated too.


Do you consider McMethod 1 or 2 to be the most effective?


McMethod 1: Start with a dry sink, the water running at a trickle. Soap and wash each dish and rinse it before stacking and moving onto the next one. Be mindful of saving water by remembering to occasionally turn off the tap.


McMethod 2: Fill up the sink with hot water and soap. Add all the dishes to the water, wash and stack on the side. Refill the sink with water, put all the clean dishes back into the water, rinse, and stack.


So, being the intrepid reporter that I am, I have decided to take advantage of the quiet week ahead on Nuts to discover even more ways or combinations of washing dishes that we have not yet discussed.


I would now like to open the conversation to my fellow Nutters...

I fill the sink with hot water,and say,"I'll put the pots in to soak".

I'll then leave them until someone else sorts it out. Easy.

Never had a dish washer.  Rinse then pots before hand to get them semi clean, then fill the sink up and wash them all.

Cut down on washing up and use paper plates and cups. Plastic knives and forks help as well but it can get rather expensive. 
However this leaves me with more time to pursue my love of stamp collecting.
