When the boys were little we had a dishwasher for a while. But it was a used one, very used, and didn't last long. Money was tight, so we didn't replace it. Once the boys were old enough to help - they would have to dry the dishes while I washed. This was called "Mother/Son Bonding Time".
When Logan was about 14 he asked if we could get a dishwasher. I asked what would happen to our Mother/Son bonding? He thought it would just be faster :) Funny boy! Eventually the boys wanted to do the dishes alone, so they could listen to their MP3 player instead of talking to old mom. Well!
A few years ago Grandma knit me some dish clothes and I love them! There is nothing like a hand knit/crocheted dish cloth. In September I hosted a give away for Hillbilly Jill who crochets wonderful dish clothes!! She has a club membership that can be purchased. There is a 6 Month Membership for $15 or a 12 Month Membership for $30 - each with FREE Shipping anywhere.
I bought the 6 month membership, needed some new dish clothes (hinted that I liked the orange one). Got my first one 2 weeks ago, and have used it many times and washed it many times since. This is an amazing dishcloth!! Can't wait to get the next 5 :)
How do you do your dishes?
