When you wash dishes, what do you do?
December 13, 2012 at 9:19 AM

My husband always washes out the second sink, then sets the dishes in it as he washes. He waits until it's practically full, and then rinses them.

I don't like it... I find it leaves a residue, because as they sit, they end up drying slightly, with soapy water on them. Unless you scrub when you rinse, they aren't rinsing clean. I do appreciate that he does the dishes, nonetheless. I check them all when I go to put them away, because he has a habit of not scrubbing dried on stuff out/off, such as milk or cheese...

I usually wash the dish, and immediately rinse it and set in the in strainer. Lately, I've been washing the dishes in the sudsy water, and leaving them in the water, just stacking them in there, and then being able to rinse everything at one time, lol. They remain wet the whole time, so no sudsy water drying before rinsing :)

What do you do? What does your hubby do?

This applies to hand washing, not dishwashers, lol

    DH turns on the sprayer thing then stacks them on one side as yours does.  But b/c the sprayer is on them, they don't dry there and just picking them up rinses them.  DH washes dishes by hand when we get too backed up to rely on just the dishwasher.  I'll load it up, he'll handwash the rest while I do counters, microwave, fridge, and floors.  He cleans the stove.

    Man I miss our sprayer thing! 

    I usually rinse the dishes and then put them in the dishwasher lol

    But before we moved into this house James would handwash all the dishes (because he's a procrastinator and never fixed the dishwasher) and he would wash, rinse, set out to dry, and onto the next dish!

    we wash in the 1st sink, rinse them without putting them in the 2nd sink and then right to the strainer.

    If I were to handwash (which I don't do too often) I wash a few then rinse them, wash a few more and rinse them.  My husband would never even think to wash a dish.

    I usually use the dishwasher but if I do hand wash, I wash the dish then immediately rinse it.
