Anything that cannot go in the dish washer, especially tupperware containers!

When we moved in together, 25 or so years ago, we had certain agreements. #1 was that the cook doesn't wash dishes. When we started out, we pretty much shared cooking duties. Over the years, hubby has more or less taken up washing (an me cooking), and he doesn't seem to mind any equipment I use. I agree -- graters are right up there. Especially when it is cheese, toss it in hot water asap, and hubby appreciates that I do that. I tend to wash my mandolin myself simply because it really needs to be washed immediately or it is a finger-threatening-disaster. But Hubby doesn't seem to mind anything I toss his way. We don't own a dishwasher, so big parties we do share the duties (both cooking and washing up). I have very unsteady hands, so I put the crystal on the sideboard until the next day, then when hubby wakes up I make up a sink of clean hot soapy water and let him do the honors (I'd break more than it would be worth)(and we don't try to clean them after a big dinner party at night -- i.e., after all that wine has gone down the throat).

One wish that among the top of my wish lists had I ever encounter Genie is, to have a little sidekick whenever I cook something and he would wash and clean everything after me, from a spoon, the blender, sticky skillet to the floor!! Darn it where are you Genie!!

I think they came from Walmart or Big Lots. She brought me several and I have given some of them away. I almost never have to wash anything in dishwater anymore. It is so much easier to wash the big things as soon as I've used them and put them away. I don't have to run the dw as often either and my pots don't get the discoloration from the dw.
My mother got me that little brush and I love it. It has an easy grip, too. I am travelling to the States next month and I am thinking of getting a couple more for other things like the bathroom sink or window sills. I was washing the bathroom this morning and I figured THAT is the thing I hate the most clenaing! worst thatn anny pot or pan or hood(I did it yesterday and it is pretty annoying!)
