Do you HANDWASH dishes or use a DISH WASHER machine?
June 15, 2007 1:07am CST
In my country, somehow people feel that it is less enviornmentally friendly to use a dish washer. They also feel that dish washers don't really do a good job of washing the dishes, hence many homes here do not have dish washers. Most people wash their dishes manually. I have been to certain countries in which almost every household uses a dish washer machine because people don't like to do the dishes so it's more convenient this way. How about your country? What's your personal preference? Please share your stories. Thanks.

When I am in Singapore, I do not own a dish washer. After I move to US, there is a dish washer in the apartment. If the dishes are not oily, it is fine to use it. It is not advice for those dishes that are too oily, food that stain or stick pretty tight to the dishes. It can't get off. Moreover, it take longer time than handwash though it is convenient and just throw all dishes into the washer and walk away. I had return to handwash to reduce electricity bill and it is cleaner.

I don't know which country u r from velvet..But here in india...most people wash dishes with their own hands...maybe because they are not yet familiar with new technology..or because they don't trust it like u said..i have never seen a home where dishwasher is used
