How often do you wash your cup in the office?

Are you speaking of like a coffee cup? That would be at least once a day. Our office has a dishwasher so at the end of the day we put all the cups in there and then the secretary who is the last to leave runs it... voila my cup is clean in the morning. Thanks Zelo

Its a good thing that your office has a dishwasher and the one who is last to leave is responsible enough to run it. At least the employees will not need to spend extra time to wash their own cups. I can also have the janitor was my cup but I often forget and I keep refilling it with water even if its not yet empty so I think I only get to have it washed maybe once a month.

Hi youless! When I was still working in an office which was a very long time ago, I wash my cup each time I use it but it is very rare that i use it since I usually use the paper cups being provided by the office. haha.. Take care and have a nice day! lovelots..faith210

Good afternoon, youless. I have a cup in my office as well. It is a nice one which has a filter inside for the purpose of blocking the tea leaves from being eaten. I have used it three years. But I have to say that I am lazy as well because I don't give it a thorough cleaning each time I wash it, but wash it at random. Next month when we start to have our new semester, I will take it home to give it a thorough cleaning by using some toothpaste. I will wash it and make it look a new one again. Maybe you will wonder,"Why next semester? Now now?". Well, here is the answer. We are going to have our winter vacation soon and I will be leaving for my hometown the day afternoon. Right now I am very busy with the rest of my work and I will start to do some simple packing when I feel like doing it. I am getting excited for the vacation. I wish you to enjoy your work and vacation as well, my dear youless.

Tell you a secret. In the past when I lived in the dormitory in the college, I was really lazy. I just covered newspaper to my bed and I left. The next semester I just removed the newspaper and then I could sleep Whereas other roommates were busy with washing their quilts and so on

Ewww... I wash mine everyday. When ever I want to use it, I would at least rinse it out. Even if I am just drinking plain water out of it. I will still rinse it out before I use it. Especially on a monday after a weekend of non-usage!

I cant imagine you only wash it once a month? . well, you said it but i advice you not to do it again, unless you dont really care about your own health. insects, bacteria stay there when its dirty. Even u only put water to it, it still needs to be clean. And if your lazy, just put hot water to it.

In my office cups are washed everyday. We have utility workers and they are the ones who wash kitchen utensils. But after office hours we have to wash our own china wares. I am not lazy when it comes to washing my cup so it's not a problem with. I'm just concerned with you, why not getting into the habit of washing your cup. Who knows what insects have gotten into it while your away. Our saliva can also attract microorganisms.
