This picture hurts my heart …MUST REARRANGE DISHES NOW.
We’ve had our lovely GE Hybrid Stainless Steel Interior Dishwasher going on two months now and it’s made the tedious task of dishwashing a lot more pleasant. One thing that hasn’t changed? My slightly anal retentive view of the proper way a dishwasher should be loaded.
Here are some of my pet peeves:
- Loading the dishwasher packed with dirty food residue (I realize you shouldn’t wash dishes before you load them, but please rinse them. I don’t want any spaghetti noodles flying’ around in there, getting a spa treatment!)
- Loading knives sharp ends up (holy potential stitches)
- Loading everything haphazardly (I load the dishwasher in the most efficient manner possible because I don’t want to do any hand washing!)
- Running the dishwasher when it’s not full (maximize that baby’s potential ya’ll)
What are some of your rules for loading the dishwasher? Are you a tad OCD, like me, when it comes to the proper … ahem … way to load it? Which team are you on? Forks up or down?
Disclosure: I received a GE Hybrid Stainless Steel Interior Dishwasher in exchange for a series of posts reviewing the appliance.
