It’s another hot day here but that is not the point of today’s post, in some parts of the world it’s Halloween but not for me, the 31st October is just my brother’s birthday and how does he get to spend it…………………..in hospital have torn cartilage removed from his knee……………lucky him…….
So here is a question for you how do you wash your dishes? Do you own a dishwasher?
Me I use a dishwasher but up until a number of years ago I had to wash them by hand and when I was washing them by hand I would use very hot water so hot that I had to wear thick rubber gloves or I would burn my hands.
What made me think of this today well while out visiting nan this morning mum was talking about how my pop thought the reason my nan’s hands looked dry and old was because she would wash up in very hot water as well but she didn’t wear gloves. However when nan was working in the hotel she had to use very hot water to wash up or the dishes didn’t get clean.
My daughter Natasha also like to wash up in very hot water and like her grannanny (great grandmother) she doesn’t always use rubber gloves to protect her hands.
If you have a dishwasher is it connected to the hot or cold water tap, mine is connected to the cold water tap but I have heard some people say that they thought it had to be connected to the hot water. I remember when we first got it one of the neighbours asked me if it used a lot of hot water and they were surprised when I said it is connected to the cold water.
