That to me looks like a perfectly loaded dishwasher. Loaded for maximum occupancy and maximum results. I have an eye for these kinds of things.
I read in the January issue of Real Simple that 40% of couples squabble about how to load the dishwasher. We are of that 40%. Sort of. It is my belief that I know my dishwasher the best. I load and run that thing at least once a day. [It is currently washing away right now.] There is an exact way to place our dishes, cups, cookware and silverware into our dishwasher to maximize the washing effort.
My husband cleans up after dinner. I cook. He cleans. For the most part he does an excellent job. However, there are times when I just quickly make some adjustments and fit a few more items in. It would be criminal to leave a dish or cup in the sink if you don't have to. We are only sort of the 40% because I don't say anything to him. I don't critique his efforts or tell him how to do it. I just change it. He knows that I do this and he doesn't seem to mind in the least. Quite simply, we don't squabble. It remains unspoken. It works for us, so why change it?
Do you rearrange for maximum washing results?
