There are few things that Willy and I consistently have disagreements over. One of these things is the dishwasher. The fights are generally not over the same thing, but you can bet that there is always something we are disagreeing over. The squabbles usually centre around what can and can’t be put in the machine, where to but things so they actually get clean, and how you need to rinse for the super efficient cycle, unless you are running it right away… We have each won our share of these little disagreements, and there is always a clearly established best way in the end.
The latest is the wine glasses. We have some of the stemless Riedel glasses, and for the most part, love them. They aren’t tippy, they don’t have pesky stems to snap, and the wine doesn’t actually get warmer faster from being held in your hand. This last fact might be because the wine is never in the glass for long… They are also dishwasher friendly, which means that we don’t have several wineglasses precariously balanced in the drying rack most days.
I recently started noticing that the glasses weren’t coming clean and mentioned it to Willy. He started to move them around in the machine, but they never got clean. We “talked” and decided they just weren’t coming clean in the dishwasher, and Willy agreed that the best way was to hand wash them, yet the next morning they were in the machine. So we “talked” again and reached the same conclusion. The next morning one had been hand washed, and one was in the dishwasher. More talking and more agreement that they needed to be hand washed.
This morning I found the same dirty wine glass in the dishwasher. Maybe I need to start cursing about this!
