I've shared before that my elderly father lives with us in our nut house.
He's a pretty easy person to live with.
He even tries to help out with dishes sometimes.
When he lived alone in his condo (up until a year and a half ago when he moved in with us) he never used his dishwasher. He just rinsed his dishes and put them back.
But when he came to live with us, we talked him into using the dishwasher.
Did I mention his vision is pretty bad?
Yep, it is.
So, often he thinks he's washed off a dish when in fact it still has a LOT of nasty food crud left behind...but the dishwasher takes care of that now.
Over Christmas, we went out of town for a few days to Austin.
And when we came back, we found evidence of dissent.
I think he tried.
He really did.
But he obviously didn't use the dishwasher.
He just rinsed dishes (minus soap) and put them back in the cabinets.
silverware back in the drawer.
I guess he couldn't see how dirty they still were...
We sure could.
But you have to appreciate his effort, you know.
And, he's gotten rather particular about what kinds of implements he will use to clean dishes.
This is our usual suspect.
But apparently he doesn't like it.
So, I went on a buying spree to try to find the right kind he would like.
Nope, he didn't like this one either.
or this one.
This yellow blob was better. He would use this one.
This ended up being his favorite.
What do you use to wash your dishes? Who washes dishes in your house? Do you wash dishes every night or do you sometimes skip a night like I do?
