Not a dish in the sink; a toddler maybe.

We had been fighting with our dishwasher for quite some time. It seemed that no matter what we did, the dishes would continue to come out splattered with bits of food. We dug out any traces of food at the bottom of the dishwasher and made sure that we didn’t block off the water spout, which we were prooobably doing for the longest. We also upgraded to Cascade ActionPacs since I’ve heard great things about them. This is one of those things that I just won’t be able to green. Oh well. I’m just happy to know that there will no longer be piles and piles of dishes in the sink, depressing me each time I enter the kitchen. (We’re now using Seventh Generation Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Pacs)

I think he’s happy too.

    I am a part-time dishwasher user. It’s life when you have a large household. I try to be green is ways that are manageable. Jay looks so entertained in the sink! What a character and my Willie is a little water bug too :)

      @Sheliza, Jay loves taking baths, but he is running up the water bill. That’s why he was in the sink!

      Oh where would I be without my *now* precious dishwasher and Cascade ActionPacs?

    I think I would curl up into a helpless ball if I didn’t have my dishwasher. Eh, I try to stay green with it by running it only when it’s completely full, and I let the dishes air dry instead of running the heating element for that, too.

    Cute pics, by the way. :)

      @Jenn, it’s been a week and there are NO dishes in the sink. OMG. Heaven. I don’t use the heat either, takes too long. I’ve tried some green dish detergents and they were not cutting it…sigh.

      Thanks :).
