  • good frigging question. I wonder that does get pretty gross though!! Maybe all the dirty fingers reaching in there to get the silverwear?

  • What about the drain board where the dishes drip clean water? : ) This happens to me, I'm always having to clean it!

  • I have the same question about the drawer organizer. Maybe particles of food are still on the knives and forks from time to time, or maybe stuff drops off of the countertop when the drawer is open. Or general dust that is in the air, like when you have to dust the top of the refrigerator, it is dusty. The drain board though, no idea.

  • I never thought about it until now, but I don't have one of those things just a drawer with silverwear dumped in it, it never gets dirty, but I have no idea why it doesn't.

  • I know. I have to wash the organizer out once a week and usually wash the drain board after every use. It's crazy...kinda makes you wonder how clean the air really isn't!

  • LOL I wonder that too. My big question for the past week was where are all my spoons. Then I caught my 22 month old hiding them in his room. Ten spoons hidden around his room. LOL Kids are crazy!

  • Your spoons huh? Well I'm down to 2 forks cause I think hubby is losing them. I wish I could blame my 2 year old.
