dishes by hand or using a dish washer? My mom and dad never got one until all of us kids moved out. She said we were her dish washers, LOL. I love dish washers!

I could never afford a dishwasher, so I have always done them by hand. I think it would be great to have one, but I don't have the place for one anyway.

You think that is bad, when I lived with my aunt and uncle, a dishwasher had came with the house and we were not allowed to use it. My aunt said that she did not trust the dishwasher to get her dishes clean enough. I lived with another aunt and she made me thoroughly wash the dishes and then put them in the dishwasher. For some strange reason, now I love to hand wash dishes and I love to vacuum also.

I like washing dishes. i like making em squeaky clean and shiny. But the bad part is everyone starts to take advantage of you. And it turns into a weakness. But i still like doing it.

We have a fairly new dishwasher sitting in kitchen but is broken...We been here going on 3 years and still it's not fixed--I don't mind washing dishes by hand but with a dishwasher just sitting there taking up space; aargh! To be honest with you, I believe that a dishwasher cleans them a lot better as the entire object is washed completely. I'm sure there are times when washing by hand I don't get some part of the dish or utensil. Perhaps one day I will have a working dishwasher. Laughing out loud.

I use my dishwasher 99.99% of the time for everything. I run an in-home daycare so we have lots of dishes all the time. The only time that I will wash by hand is if there is too much for the dishwasher and I don't want to wait for another "load" or if there is something that I need to use right away and it's not already clean.

I got a dishwasher after 20 years of living away from my parents home and I could never go back! I can't believe it took me that long to get one. I can't believe I used to wash them by hand!

I always wanted a dishwasher in the worst way when my kids were growing up. Having to do dishes for 5 people wore my hands down. Now that they are grown up I bought a used portable one for $80. It was the best buy I have ever made.

I wish i had a dish washer. Oh wait i do!! its me!! . No, I hate washing dishes so very much. Would be so nice to just stick them in a dishwasher and forget it. Dishes are never ending and seem to pile up all the time. I am tired. lol

I love water on my hands, i play with water when i was a kid. Washing plates i like to do as my house chores, its FUN. I usually was the glasses and cups first, then plates, last are the utensils. I like it in that sequence. :P Though i love water, i dont like doing laundry. :)

We don't have a dishwasher, but I really wish we did, cause it would be so much easier than having to do them all by hand all the time. My mom has one at her house, but we don't have one here at my dad's house.

I couldn't live without my dishwasher. I love it! I hate washing dishes, and I can put the dirty ones in there and doesn't look messy in the kitchen.

I got a dishwasher a couple of years ago and have never washed-up since. I love it and if it broke tomorrow I would not hesitate to go and buy another one straight away. I hate washing-up and the rest of my family are useless. The only argument now is who is going to empty it and refill the thing!!!
