Triumph! As promised I have learned how to use the dishwasher and am ready to share the secrets to defeating that monster.
If you follow these easy yet somewhat inconvenient steps you will have clean dishes in no time:
Step 1 – Take the clean dishes that are in the dishwasher and put them away. If you don’t you will have no room to put the dirty dishes.
Step 2 – Take the dirty dishes and wash them by hand. I know this sounds completely outrageous because if you wash the dishes, why do need the dish washer? The answer is only minimally wash them to reduce grease build up, a heavy rinse should suffice.
Step 3 – Put the rinsed dishes and load them into the dishwasher. Put plates, pans and silverware on the bottom tray, while putting pots, bowls, and cups on the top tray.
Step 4 – The the washer detergent type thing into the compartment on the inside of the door and close the compartment. (Sorry I don’t know what the actual name is.)
Step 5 – This is by far the most important step, CLOSE THE MACHINE DOOR. If you don’t you and your floor will be very unhappy.
Step 6 – Push the buttons on the door that say “pots and pans”, “big load”, “extra dry”, and “start wash”.
Step 7 – Repeat steps 1 through 6 when the sink gets full again.
That is the full proof way to conquer the dishwasher. Also if you would like visual aide, they are located at the top of the page in “Household Comics”.
While Marcus was teaching me how to do all of this Adam said, “Let’s just push all the buttons and see what happens.”
Sadly this is actually a good idea. I know this because me and Adam tried it one time while Marcus wasn’t home and the dishes came out spotless.
Remember I was also the guy who couldn’t properly put out the recycling (Which I did correctly this week!) so don’t exactly take my word on that last bit of advice.
Now as the house continues to be explored I am continuously finding new things that I do not recognize and I will post about them. However, in order for this to be a forum I need to post what you want to read about.
That being said, if there is anything I have yet to discuss that you would like to hear an apartment dwellers perception of please post it in a comment.
And as all ways keep wandering through that maze, just don’t touch anything that looks like it could cause you harm (ie. can opener).
