People who leave cereal with a bit of milk in a bowl in the sink

1) The milk goes terrible,very very quickly

2) As the milk goes terrible and dries, it adheres the cereal like cement to the bowl.

rinse, the, ****ing thing out!

even if i don't need the tp but i notice that there's only a few squares left on the roll, i'll change it out to make sure there's plenty for the next time she needs it.

it's a small thing, but i really believe it's something that helps me keep my head and heart right wrt to my wife. it's a small thing that opened my eyes as to how i can better serve her in both small and big ways.

clean/wipe down all food prep surfaces

clean as you go while prepping and cooking

after dining, put away leftovers first before anything else

rinse tableware (plates, glasses, utensils, etc.) and put in dishwasher

clean/wipe down cooking surfaces (stove top and surrounding area)

wash any remaining pots and pans

wipe down all counters

there are only a few right ways to do this, and yet so many do it a moran way

My dad always washed the dishes completely before putting them in the dishwasher. So, basically, the dishwasher became nothing but a sanitizer. But that can't be great environmentally. It was a TON of wasted water.

So now I knock all the big dry or hard stuff into the trash, then run big mushy stuff down the disposal. But I don't rinse anything before it goes in the dishwasher. I thought enzymatic cleaners need a certain amount of organic matter to best do their jobs, so it's a win-win to leave some food on the plates (easier on me, and allows the detergent to do its job better.)
Depends heavily on whether your dishwasher will drain that stuff.

I once had to take apart the sprayer things on the top and bottom of the dishwasher, because someone had the bright idea to put an empty bowl of popcorn with some kernels still in it. The kernels got stuck in the holes, and nothing was getting cleaned.
Once the bottom drain was clogged as well.

I will do some pre-soak if I have a stack of dishes with a bunch of dried food on them. Fill the sink, put the dishes in there for 10 minutes or so, easy-wipe, and put in the dishwasher to, yes, sanitize them. That saves some water (i.e., it's not running for 20 minutes -- in fact, I'm gonna use that water for the pots and pans, so, win-win-win .... win).

BTW: Bosch. Not buying another one of these ever. Probably will get the GE (or anything else) with a delay-start, so I can close the dishwasher AND eat something afterward. 'cause I don't want to start it until we're all done eating. But, it's about 10 years old and showing no signs of disrepair. Damned thing.

It's funny how much cleaning the kitchen is mentioned so far as a lot of the things that cause me irrational stress are kitchen cleaning related.
I think that is because everyone knows what happens when the kitchen isn't clean: Rats, cockroaches, ants. (Depending on your location.)

I am very anal about how laundry is folded (needs to be folded a certain way to properly fit in the dresser drawers, so I just do it.
