Unless you have a large family and use a lot of dishes, don't even USE a dishwasher, wash dishes the old-fashioned way -- by hand. And, if you're concerned about "dishpan hands," use hand cream/lotion.


I couldn't agree more... on all points!

There is no more danger in not heat-drying than if you put dishes on a rack. Just open the door of the dishwasher and let the air dry things out.


Even more interesting, some scientists speculate that a bacteria found in soil actually functions as an antidepressant.

I prefer 'air drying' I must say. Saves a bit of cash too.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

This dude almost got in a fight with his wife because of the way they should dry dishes? You people have lots of spare time on your hands. Pleae, do something more constructive, instead of fighting for stuff that does not matter.

i agree with just opening the door to let things dry. that is the best solution to it.


Germs? Really? You're breathing the air in all day and any food you eat is in the same air while it's on your plate! I'm nearly 30 years old and never in my life have we used any dry-cycle in the dish washer, much less a heated dry cycle. We just open the dish washer when it's done and let it ACTUALLY air dry. I agree that an "air dry" cycle IN the dishwasher without heat sounds weird, so just don't use it. Problem solved. Your wife needs to chill.
