Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

help settle a argument... dishrags haha

Posted by   + Show Post

My mom drives me nuts when she comes over,  she made a mess in my kitchen, example spills coffee, she uses the rag im using to do dishes with to clean it up, and expects me to use that same rag to finish doing dishes.  To me this is disgusting, She says its normal. What do you moms do? I use clorox wipes to clean messes, and rags only if its a big mess but only use that rag for that. Do you moms use the same rag for multiple things?

No-- I actually use one of those sponges with soap in the handle for dishes. If I use a cloth to wipe up a mess, it goes in the wash. They harbor MICROBES!

I use a separate rag for counters only and use a paper towel for dishes

 I have two rags.  One for dishes and one for wiping and they get washed after every use.  I'm not a neat freak by any standards but that's one thing I can't do.  I use three in the bathroom.  One for the sink, one for the tub and one for the toilet too.  So does my son.  I think it's nasty otherwise.

I do depending on what it is that I'm cleaning. 

I mean I wouldn't take a rag from the kitchen and clean say a wall or the bathroom or the tv with it. I will use the same rag to clean up a spill of food or something then rinse it out really well and use it to do the dishes. 

Probably shouldn't be doing that. Contamination. Who knows what's on the counter. Unless it was clean before she spilled something on it. Sometimes I think I take that food borne illnesses chapter in culinary a bit too far.

Her drink on the counter isnt going to make your dishwater any dirtier than the food your washing off your dishes. Lol
