If you use eggs...

There are some things that I don't like to put in the dishwasher and I prefer to hand wash them. For instance, beaters from a mixer. My husband says that's not good enough to get them clean, if I use eggs. I disagree. I think washing them with hot water and soap is good enough. You know, there are some people who don't have dishwashers.

Do you think hand washing is sufficient enough?

  • In my experience, hand washing usually does a better job than a dishwasher! Your hubby's silly.

  • i never really thought about it. i assumed if you use hot water and a cleaning agent, you can get things as clean as necessary. does your dh think before the invention of dishwashers we never got our dishes clean????

  • I believe handwashing is so much BETTER. In my experience, the dishwasher does not do as GOOD.

  • They are both ok, but hand washing can get to the nook and crannies.

  • handwashing is fine. i stopped using my dishwasher months ago because it does such a poor job cleaning. i wash any and everything by hand, even my whisk after using it to scramble eggs.
