As we are still actually talking about environmental, doesn't rinsing the dishes before putting in the dishwasher see like a double negative? Wash 'em be fore putting them in the dishwasher? :???:

Isn't that a similar concept to taking a dump after a shower??!!

I wouldn't know about that. We tend to just scrap the plates before putting them in the dishwater. But then again, a lot depends on whether you put your detergent in the sink of water or you use a small detergent bowl so are only using the water as a pre/post rinse before the final rinse in the 2nd smaller sink. We alway saved the heavy gear (pots, etc) for last. Whatever. Works for us.

Still can't believe how many pages dishwater can take up! Pretty dirty topic I guess. :D

Are there dishwashers now? I'm moving soon to SG, so I need to know this. Here in Washington, I have Thermador dwhd640jfp dishwasher https://www.appliancesconnection.com/thermador-dwhd640jfp.html, and I hope so that I could buy something similar there? Any advice? Also, I need advice for some good refrigerator. Any info could help :)

Thank you!

I have a Myanmar Dishwasher. But she also doubles as the housekeeper and Mother-in-Law minder. :mrgreen:

We had no room in the kitchen so the dishwasher went outside with the washer and dryer. It's the Bosch under the dryer and it worked well. We also had a second fridge (far left) outside for drinks.

I am the dishwasher in my house. That is the only physical activity I do and it is also the only help I do for my wife.

I always wonder if we should buy a dryer and/or a dishwasher, but if we do so, then the last bit of physical activity that we do will also be gone and replaced with more time in front of screen.

Generally speaking, I think most people use their hands? :mrgreen:
small stool, large tub, and when finished just pour it into the raised concrete bund around the washing machine that is the original washing area prior to having machines to do the washing. I also had stacked washer & dryer when I lived in Seletar Airbase (In a black & white).
