Early in our marriage, Suzi and I would disagree on rinsing the dishes prior to loading them in the dishwasher. My thought was: It's a dishwasher, what's the point of hand washing them first! Of course, she won that argument, and many years later you'll find me rinsing dishes before loading them.
Apparently, dish washing is a big argument starter in relationships. I saw an online survey that said we have 217 arguments a YEAR over dishwashing! That's crazy! And, a lot of wasted time!
What "dishwasher" topics generate the most heat?
- To pre-rinse or not.
- Who has the responsibility of washing/loading the dishes
- Should you let them soak? (Notice how you can soak them for a week because you're too lazy to load them? )
- Letting dirty dishes sit in the sink although the dishwasher is empty.
