dont think ive ever seen a topic like this here before.
So when/if you do the dishes, how do you load the dishwasher?
Do you just cram dishes in there?
Do you try to be organized?
I have to wash the dishes every night.
Me, i try to be organized. ours has about 6 slots for silverware. the first slot i put forks in, second i put spoons in, third is for butter knives. the remaining slots are for miscellaneous silverware. likeplastic forks and such. oversized silverware.
our steak knives or sharp knives i wash by hand.
then i put plates and bowls on the bottom rack.
then everything else goes on the top rack. regular cups on one side, then cups with handles(mostly coffe cups) go on the other side. then big plastic spoons and other various bigger or oddly shapen utensils go in the middle.
i handwash pots and pans and other things too big for the dishwasher.
Sometimes when the dishwasher gets full i will put some bowls in the top rack.
I also find myself re-arranging the dishes on the rare occasion that my parents do the dishes, as they often put the dishes in the wrong spot:P
So OT, how do you load your dishwasher?
