When it comes to doing the dishes, I will give my husband this: he's better than he used to be. When we first met 15 years ago, he purposely wouldn't wash the backs of plates, claiming "they don't get dirty," a lazy plea that was so easily disproven he couldn't keep it up for long. So although he thankfully now washes the entire plate, it doesn't mean the road to thoroughly washed dishware has been easy, or that he's somehow become a person who doesn't hate doing dishes.
No, he's a reluctant dishwasher for life. Perhaps you, the enthusiastic cook, live with one too? Whether it's a partner, a relative, or a roommate — or maybe it's you! — these five conditions will be very familiar to you.
