Thank goodness for inefficiency...

We run the dishwasher about twice a week at our place, and we're neither of us very enthusiastic about unloading it and putting the dishes away. So they sit, clean, in the washer for a couple of days sometimes; meanwhile we rinse the plates and set them on the counter. Ah, procrastination!

After a few days, it becomes difficult to discriminate between the (clean) dishes in the washer and the (almost-clean) dishes on the counter. When I eventually get a wild hair to put away the dishes, generally the only way I can tell whether the washer is clean or dirty is to look at the bottoms of the coffee mugs in the top rack: if the concentric hard-water rings match the cups' current orientation in the rack, then they're clean.

I live in fear that one day I'll try out a dishwashing detergent that actually lives up to its promises and doesn't leave a hard water deposit. How would I know the dishes were clean if they weren't just a little dirty?
