While some might say, “get a dishwasher,” I still prefer to do them by hand.
For those of you that have been hanging around my blog from the beginning of time, hopefully, have no clue when I am kidding and when I am not—-and therefore you know that for me, doing the dishes is a “Religious Experience.” A while back, while I was in “church,” I broke a plate in the sink. This reminded me of one of the few “Helpful Heloise” type hints that I know of.
What do you do when you have a sink full of water covered with soap suds and you have something broken and sharp waiting to cut you in the bottom of the sink?
Well you take a clear glass bottom bowl (like the one to the left of the sink in the picture above) and you float it in the water and then push it down into the water—-don’t let it fill up with water though. Then—you can pretty clearly see the bottom of the sink and find the broken pieces. Then you can reach in and remove them safely.
Can you see the broken plate? Along with all the silverware?
And that is my helpful hint for the day.
