I'm a man and I do the dishes. I'll let that sink in for a second...go ahead and read it again if it helps. Whether you believe it or not it's true. Does it happen everyday? No. But there are days when no one in my house does them. Fortunately we have a dishwasher which makes the task much easier, but is there a right and wrong way to load it? Do you need to use a rinse agent? What about general detergent, is powder better than liquid? Could I ask more questions?
