In my house we rinse our dishes as we use them and put them right into the dishwasher. I hate having dirty dishes pile up in the sink! I always wash the sink out after I wash the dish because imo having peices of food sit there is gross. As far as I am conerned its part of the job. Hubby insists its not and that I need to do it when I clean the kitchen up at the end of the day. What do you ladies think?
