We don't use the dishwasher because there's only two of us, so not many dishes, pots, and eating utensils go in the sink like in big families. Nonetheless it is time consuming. And I don't have cleaning gloves, yuck! I hate it when junk floats in the water I soaked the dishes in. It's like the suspended load of a stream or river. And the bristles of the scrubber sometimes flick the food particles around. How do some people conclude that I like doing this?
