Marsky, my best friend used to do that too! She would wash the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Never understood that to be honest! lol Next time you're in the store, Dawn makes some prewash aids for the dishwasher. You spray it on, let it sit for about
5 minutes and supposedly it has enzymes that will break down the food before the washer gets turned on. I don't have one of those dishwashers (thank goodness) or I think I would've put it to the curb within the first week! :)

Joan - you know I really don't want to quarrel with you and yes I agree, things are in a terrible state. Some areas worse than other areas. On that we can agree and on another note, I wish no one had to struggle for decent wages, housing, food on the table, safety, etc.
Maybe I'll give that Dawn product a try Red_34, all I know is this new dishwasher (basic type, cheap but energy efficient, I was told you can't buy anything but energy efficient anymore) uses far less water, turns off and on, for 120 minutes and doesn't get dirty dishes clean. Even with the jet dry added and/or making sure hot water is running when the DW begins.
My main point in all of this and why I specifically started this topic, was to vent that energy efficient and water conserving appliances (toilets too) are not all they're cracked to be.
