A debate is brewing over the right and wrong way to handwash dishes

A debate is brewing over the right and wrong way to handwash dishes

When it comes to cleaning the dishes, everyone has their own process. But, when discussing how people handwash their china, there were two standout categories.

According to Bon Appetit magazine author Nikita Richardson there are those that wash the bottom of their dishes, and others that don’t.

Her article titled “Please, I’m begging you, wash the bottom of your dishes” has sent Twitter into a meltdown over the weekend, as it sparked a debate between those who do and those who don’t.

A lot of users were surprised that this was even having to be reiterated, believing it to be common knowledge.

Others admitted that the thought never crossed their mind.

And on the other end, there were those who decided to share their stories of disgusting housemates and family members who weren’t up to par on the hygiene front.

But thankfully, most sided with Richardson on this one, who pointed out: “Not washing the bottom of your dishes is the first step on a slippery slope toward half-assery.”
