It is SO OLD that ya pretty much have to "wash" the dishes before you load it!
So why not wash them really good then let them dry....now I do dishes several times a day, a
few at a time, then there is a lot less to put away before I wash some more! Now I never have a
sink full of dirty dishes because I hate to unload a full dishwasher! Wish I would have thought of
this a long time ago !
( this in not a picture of my dishwasher....mine is too ugly to show! )
