Dirty Dishes are an inevitable part of life. You have eat, you are human, therefore you will dirty dishes. There are two types of dish people in the world; those who love to dish and do so right after completing their meal and those who let the sit. I am a part of the first group. A messy kitchen gives me anxiety and I can’t move on to my next task until the first one (the kitchen ) is squared away. This means as soon as a meal is complete, the dishes are washed. My husband, on the other hand, falls in to the second category. He loves to cook, eat and relax for a while before tackling the dishes. Although, not my cup of tea, it eventually gets the job done. Which category do you fall into?
Regardless, if you wash your dishes right away or wait a while, you are bound to find a pot or dish that has caked on food that is near to impossible to get off. Our favourite dish challenge is Mac n’ Cheese. The ooey gooey goodness of melted cheese in a creamy sauce on top of noodles is a staple in our house. When it comes times to the dishes is were the trouble begins. Not every homeowner or apartment dweller is lucky enough to have a dishwasher, and most of us don’t have a ton of time (or want!) to spend cleaning dishes! This spring, Vileda Canada is equipping kitchens everywhere with the ultimate tool to ensure an ultra-speedy dish washing on even the toughest foods.
