I think that most of us take it as a given that we will use dishwashers to clean up our dishes. I've had a few, but I have to say that I rarely use dishwashers. Most of the time, immediately after using dishes, I just clean them up. It takes a few minutes, but it's pretty efficient. Naturally, this means that we've got dishes drying on our dish rack all of the time, but at least it gets the job done.
