I stopped using my dishwasher about two weeks ago and I am LESS stressed out about cleaning my kitchen. Granted, if I have a huge mess, I'll probably use my convenient appliance. But here's the scoop:
I don't have to think about what goes in and what I need to wash by hand.
I don't have to handle dishes as much to load/unload/transfer to drying rack.
I always have things clean that I need.
I don't have dirty dishes piling up because I need to empty out the dishwasher.
It's really fast to just clean up after each meal.
Seriously, if dishes stress you out, I recommend this. If you are someone who never had issues with dishes, well I confess... I am the girl who hid dishes under her sink when company came over. haha!
My husband even noticed how much cleaner I've been keeping the kitchen. Points for me!
So had to share!
