Peanut butter knife
Bowl with Weetabix bits cemented to side
without any water & washing up liquid being put in it
Bits of soggy pasta and onion as well.
Or a hand reaching out through the plughole to strangle you.
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU WASH UP A SIEVE???
They always remain.
My sieve is pristine. Scrub both sides with brush and power water through.
just swish it around in freshly run washing up water without any other bits in and there's no other bits to get stuck to it.
Then you move onto mugs.
Then side plates and other low-dirt items.
Finally it is the turn of the really dirty stuff with bits all over it.
be more selective with what you use it to drain so it doesn't matter if you wash it first. Break the habit!
You sloosh the water through one side and it'll get some of the debris away, but never all of it. So you grab your dish cloth and try to clean it out with that and then - oh no - some of it gets pushed through the holes to THE OTHER side. Once you're wrestling with a sieve with stuff clinging to both sides, the game is up - that thing is never getting cleaned.
I generally dry it up, using the tea towel to scrape off some last minute bits and then sheepishly stuff it under some pots and pans and hope no-one uses it for a few days, until the identity of who last washed the dishes has been lost in the mists of time.
displaying this thread.
And I STILL washed it up before the peanut butter knife.
and someone's used the zester side of it.
Anything that's got cheese that gets cooked onto it.
Sieve, cheese grater, little steamer do thingy.
or my own future life
lost it's non stickiness and now sits in the sink with the burnt embers of a fried egg entombed within its base
i can barely feed the cat without vomiting because cat food is so rank and you want me to wash this?
NO FUCKING WAY, JOSE. GET OUT OF MY HOUSE.
when we used to buy tins of food for the cat, you'd have to get it out with a teaspoon and afterwards there'd be all jellified slimy chunks of meat (yeah, meat, right) stuck on the spoon. I spent years stirring my tea with my finger. Makes me wretch thinking about it. Praise Allah for pouches and bags of dried food.
