Up until probably a month ago, I hadn’t used my dishwasher for well over a year. Like any good Asian household, I use the dishwasher rack to dry my hand-washed dishes.
Last month, I used the dishwasher just so that all the parts and motors could be run again. I didn’t want the appliance to get into a bad state just because I didn’t use it. I’ve run twice again since then. The most recent time was just tonight. I didn’t have a lot of dirty dishes but I had used up all my clean bowls and I was just so tired tonight, I didn’t feel like hand-washing.
I gotta admit, it’s way more convenient to let the machine do the dirty work.
