  • Dishwasher. With 7 people in the house it would take all freaking day to wash the amount of dishes we use in a day. Before we moved back in with my dad I had to wash by hand. Our sink didn't have the 2 tubs, just 1 so I had to fill a large bowl with water to wash in and there was just enough room to maneuver the dish to the running water to rinse. With 6 people in the family (including one baby on bottles) it was a big pain in the butt.
    I took me over an hour to do dishes every morning and I always had to stop and dry half way through because our dish drainer wasn't big enough to fit everything.

  • Dish soap and hot water. I fill the other side of the sink to rinse them instead of running the water and wasting it. Dishwasher only gets used if we have company over.

  • i rinse and put them in the dishwasher

    I don't know why I even use the dishwasher- I could easily clean them by hand each time they're used.

  • I don't. DH does almost all our dishes. He uses the dishwasher for some and does others by hand.

  • Drying with a towel is less sanitary, so we always air dry. Sometimes we use the dishwasher, sometimes we hand wash. Love and care? Whatever, as long as their clean . . . they're not my children.

  • I prewash with water and then send through a light cycle in the dishwasher. Now that I type that out, I know I should just use soap and save a step, but oh well. LOL

  • I've been washing dishes by hand since I was 5 years old. I prefer this over a dishwasher so that I KNOW they're clean! Friends that have dishwashers are always telling me that leftover food residue is left on the dishes. YUK!
