    Default Is This Gross?

    Hi everyone, I have a question for you guys, I had a family member over the other evening, and I was loading my dishwasher after dinner, I run my dishwasher at night when I go to bed, and then the dishes are done and dry in the morning. After I feed Dozer and Blossom in the morning, I always rinse out their stainless steel bowls with hot water, and then dry them out with a paper towel, I never use my dish cloth just paper towel, then I place them on top of the dog food bins for their evening meal. After they have eaten at night, I again rinse out the bowls with hot water and then place them in my dishwasher. They get washed with my dishes overnight, and then I take them out in the morning and give them their breakfast. My family member was totally grossed out, and told me it was disgusting that I put my dog bowls in the dishwasher. I told her that the dishes get washed in boiling water, and they also go through a very hot drying cycle, where I can't even touch the dishes until they've cooled down, so they are disinfected. She didn't agree with me, and said it was gross. Does anyone else wash their dog bowls in the dishwasher? Or does anyone else think this is gross? I was wondering what others opinions were. How do others wash their dog bowls?

    I typically hand wash the dog dishes but my husband usually puts them in the dishwasher. I don't think washing in the dishwasher is gross at all.

    When I was younger (a teenager) I use to think that dogs licking human plates was gross - but now if the dogs dishes are in the dishwasher and they need to be fed I use our bowls.

    I digress - to each their own, I guess. However this family member might be a germaphobe and there will be no rationale for them

    I don't wash their bowls in the dishwasher every day, but several time a week they go in the dishwasher with my own plates and glasses.

    Monica I do the same thing that you do… I put the dog bowls in our dishwasher as well, and never thought a thing about it!!! Lol Roxie LOVES to pre-wash our dishes before I turn on the dishwasher…

    I hand wash them and my wife puts them in the dishwasher. Nothing wrong with it at all.

    I do both. If I'm washing just a few plates or glasses (I don't cook much) I'll hand wash everything.

    If there's a ton of dishes, the bowls go into the washer with everything else.

    First off, I don't see anything wrong with this. Let me ask you a question, does she expect you to use a separate sponge when you hand wash the dog bowls? If not, don't you think if there was a gross factor it would be using the same sponge that you wipe the table with??? Some people will just never get it. I say next time she is over have a gigantic smooch fest with both the babies and then kiss her and tell her how happy you are to be friends!!

    I don't get it either. I am a germaphobe. Especially when it comes to dishes. I'm sure most of us here have that older relative that when you visit the dishes are kinda sticky cause the "good china" hasn't been used in years..
    Well I did. I always use to wash those for my great-aunt. I couldn't touch them without cleaning them first.

    But this? ha! Sounds crazy to me.
