Having to do it by hand
April 3, 2018 12:40pm CST
For the past couple of days, I have had to wash the dishes by hand because our dish washer completely died. We have had it for around 10 years and I did notice a couple of months ago, that it seemed like it wasn't washing the dishes as good as it had when it was newer. We will be on the lookout for a good deal to replace it. We are not in a big rush to replace it. We want a good brand but we also want a good price. When washing dishes by hand, I realize how many dishes and utensils get used and dirty. It is a never ending chore throughout the day.

I never wanted a dishwasher as I thought they'd use a lot of water but now I've got one I wouldn't want to be without it. We have oodles of water here which we catch off the roof so my argument against them doesn't hold water any more - so to speak.

Such a good idea to find the best dishwasher at a reasonable price. I do use a dishwasher, but on occasion, I wash the dishes by hand just to avoid filling the dishwasher I do not like emptying that dishwasher when all the dishes are done so I drag out the filling it up a bit.
If I have to wash the dishes myself, I make sure to use as few pots, dishes and utensils as I can. My mother loves and hates when my father cooks, and the reason she hates is because he'll use tons of items but won't wash any. A cluttered kitchen sink is never a good sight. We never had dish washers.

I don't have a dishwasher so I have to wash my dishes usually twice day as the sink gets full. I hate doing dishes it is my least favorite chore. I think it's smart your not just rushing right out to buy one but will look for a good deal instead!
