    I know the sheer horror of not having a dishwasher. It's... it's just too awful to comtemplate!




    Seriously though mine had a problem with draining a while back and in the end we called an engineer who cleaned out the most horrible looking gunk out the pipes. Not wax just 5 years of build up of old food waste junk, limescale, you name it. His first piece of advice to us was to stop wasting money on these all in one dishwasher tablets because any salt in them is more or less washed away in the first few minutes. So you still need to use salt in the compartment in hard water areas like mine. He said the same for washing machines too - get washing soda crystals not those fancy smanchy tablets. They are cheaper and work better. On the good news front, after he cleaned it out it works perfectly and it only cost us about £50 to get it sorted. The hardest part was actually getting the machine out, since its a built in one so, word of warning if yours is too - tell them so they bring the right tools!

    Hmm, that was... domesticated.
    Ah, someone who understands the horror!

    Mine isn't built-in, as witness the fact that I had it out of it's slot ealier I think it's got an extended warranty. Have to root around in my files tomorrow and see if I can find it

    I haven't washed dishes by hand since............. hm......... well Rob used to do the dishes...... when he joined the RAF in 1999 I washed-up for about two weeks then went out and bought a dishwasher So not counting those two weeks, I reckon it's got to be at least 15 years since I had to do it by hand.

    And you don't need to gutterize that Josiane and Nad! That one I can work out for myself

      My housemates dont really let me use the dishwasher...it uses to much water and power apparently, and doesn't wash the dishes properly.

      The reason it doesnt wash the dishes properly is that they dont rinse their dishes when they're finished with them

      and the reason it doesn't bother them to do the dishes is that neither of them have done the dishes since at least last Thursday...I'm sure youc an tell how I know this...

      *le sigh* share housing, yay!

      (that being said, my housemates are pretty cool...they're just really messy )

          I've been washing them by hand since about two years ago. So not very long.

            Not to be pedantic or anything but it's actuall more economically and environmentally efficient to put the dishwasher on once a day than it it to wash up as you go several times a day.
            Although, by the sounds of things, washing as you go is something of a novelty too.

            You know, next time you see a sink load that nobody wants to touch, just scoop the whole lot up and chuck it outside then serve up their food on paper plates with plastic knives and forks.

            Actually that is a huge bugbear of mine since my lovely, wonderful hubby does tend to drop things in the sink and leave them there. Which is find, temporarily but since I can't load the dishwasher efficiently for toffee they tend to get in the way. Also, he doesn't wash away the chuncky bits properly - particularly cat food - so they sit in the plug hole and the sink then gets a sort of film of grease/grime around it. I'm not the world's most houseproud person but it is most irksome.

            Don't even start me on the oven. Just. Dont!

                      Ok, I'll blame it on a stressful day

                      I had a really really horrific experience earlier

                      My dishwasher stopped and started flashing lights at me. I opened it and discovered it full of icky water which it refused to drain. On investigating I realised that one of the candle holders I put in it yesterday still had some candle left in it, which melted and clogged up the pipes. So I syphoned out the ick, collected as much of the candle grease as I could (icky icky job ), then put it on a really hot wash. It stopped again and flashed it's lights......... so I'll have to call the engineer in tomorrow.

                      But that wasn't the worst of it, oh no!

                      After dinner I had to put water in the kettle, turn it on, wait for it to boil, empty it into the sink and.......... I had to wash the dishes BY HAND!!!!

                      And THEN I had to DRY THEM, BY HAND!!!!! *sobs*
                      (((((((((Jumble))))))))))

                      As you will probably see in a couple of weeks I am completely and utterly ANTI housework! I have no poblem washing clothes, tidying the living room or anything like that but the kitchen is a no go area for me.

                      We do have a dishwasher, his name is Dave. And I do keep him excellently maintained in case of beakdowns.

                        I hope you regularly service him and keep all his moving parts greased up.


                        Life's too short for housework Sarai.

                        My place is a permanent mess. I work from home so I have all my work's files etc, with my book hoardyness and everything else hoardyness too. It's just too small for all the stuff I own and every room needs decorating again but, hah, no chance with a three year old around and, really, not much point either while he's still destroying everything I loved and cherished! I need a bigger house. I just can't afford one. Well not around here anyway.

                          Cags a bigger house is not the answer - that just gives you more space to mess up and more to clean and tidy

                          And as you and Sarai both know, my house is also a mess

                          But well decorated
