Dishwasher Load-in

What's the drill? I'll rinse and scrape stuff. Others knock off the big stuff from the plate and in it goes.

I let everything sit on the counter for at least 5 days. This lets the food harden into an impregnable mass, clinging to the surface of my cookware. Then after the smell reaches a point where it's the first thing I notice when I get home from work, I'll finally load it all into the dish washer. Usually half of the stuff gets clean. The other half still has the fossilized food stuck to it. At this point it's a toss up between leaving the still-dirty dishes in the washing machine to await the next load or trying to soak them in hot water. The latter, taking about 3 days of soaking (read: fungus cultivating). I'll scrub off what I can and throw it in with the next batch. And VOILA! Clean dishes!

Eubi: (to sons) "Why aren't these plates in the dishwasher?"

Eubi (to sons, later) "Why are these plates still in the dishwasher?"

Couldn't be easier!

Seriously...I put the dishes in the dishwasher after cleaning and scraping off ALL the food. My fancy-schmancy dishwasher is supposed to be able to digest a 25# turkey and a wedding cake, but I'm the one who winds up fixing it when it breaks down.

But that's just me. I think explody pup's method is closer to real life.

First of all, you need two dishwashers. You take clean plates from one, and return them to the other dirty. Rinse, scrape, let it sit - whatever you prefer. After a while you run out of clean plates and/or there's no more room for dirty dishes. With a little practice and effort both happen simultaneously (meaning you don't need cupboards anymore). This is when you switch on the washer, which then becomes the one to get clean plates from.

I like the two dishwasher idea...

One for dishes, another for bike parts!

You keep them next to the sink?

I'd also like a second dishwasher. I'm pretty good about loading up but it's putting away that kills me - out of sight, out of mind. They're clean so why worry about them? In the meantime they're sitting lonely and afraid in the dark dishwasher - but clean - very clean.

Unloading the dishwasher is soooooo 1997. My goal is to clean as I go. This usually works great until 1/2 way into the week or the beginning of the weekend.
