With that system one would need a sticker to remind to flip the
sticker, to remind to flip the sticker, to remind to flip the sticker,
into infinity. My dishwasher has two little green lights that come on
when the washing is done, they go off when the door is opened...
that's all the reminder one should need... but... not everyone has
functioning brains, now do you get it? Someone named Heather (airhead
name) would obviously need a "Wiped/Unwiped" sticker on her ass. LOL
We have a lot of coffee cups that have recessed bottoms, holding about
a teaspoon each. 4 or so of those upturned before drying them with a
towel can get the whole bottom level splattered and too wet to put
away without drying with a towel. We have been known to put a dirty
dish in with the clean ones, about once a month or so I would guess.
Usually we figure it out, but I'd be willing to bet that a couple of
not so clean dishes got removed by the next person who came to the
kitchen and saw the timer at the end of the cycle. Such is life<G>

Lordy, such a long thread for such a trivial question. Buy a couple of

Personally, I keep the clean dishes in the dishwasher. When there are no
more clean dishes in there, I move the staged rinsed dishes from that
half of the two-hole sink to the dishwasher, and run it. Only thing in
the cabinet are the seldom-used items.
That sounds like a good idea.
My scheme is this: If the door is shut completely, the contents are clean
and need to be put away.
If the door is ajar, the stuff inside is dirty and the washer is waiting for
more dishes to make a full load.
I've been adding a teaspoon of TSP to the washer to make up for absence of
phosphates in the newly compounded detergents.
WOW! What a difference!
When I exhaust my current supply of liquid Cascade, I'm gonna get powdered
detergent and add the TSP to the box.
That simply means that your water is too hard... you need to install a
water softener before all the plumbing in your house suffers chronic
arteriosclerosis and your horrendous plumbing repair bills far exceed
the cost of a water softener.... just the savings from using half as
much cleaning products alone will more than pay for the softening...
and you'll never again need to decalcify your plumbing/bathing
First, since you are Heather Mills, why don't you take some of the $40
million you got in the divorce from Paul McCartney and hire someone to
do you dishes?
But seriously, folks, what we do is this: If the dishwasher is
locked, the dishes are clean, because, after all, it won't run if it
TSP sounds like a good idea. You're probably putting in a whole lot more
phosphates than the old formula detergents ever had. OTOH, that's not
being very green.
OTOH, just as long as everybody else is not doing this, I suppose you
and I can do it with very little environmental impact. My guess is that
this would work great with the laundry too.
