I’m one of those people who rinses all the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. I know I’m not supposed to do this – modern detergents need to “eat” something, and if there are no bits of food to eat, the detergent will eat my dishes, or something like that — but I can’t seem to help myself.

When it comes to cleaning, I am all about getting as much done as possible, in as little time as possible. That’s especially true when it comes to the kitchen.
