    Very good post! I have a portable dishwasher that does an ok job, but I’m going to try some of the tips you mentioned to see if I can boost its performance.

    My mother in law likes doing the dishes ( ::head explosion:: ). We had my 1 year old’s birthday party this week and I told her we could use our dishwasher but she chose to wash all my dishes by hand.
    I don’t have slob tendencies usually but your blog is still a favorite of mine and I eagerly await each new podcast. Listening to them encourages me to clean, thank you :)!

    Dana, Thank you for reinforcing the fact that it’s not the presence of a dishwasher that makes the difference, but the presence of a routine/ daily habit instead. I am the reader/listener who wrote to you a month or so ago about my dishwasher being on the fritz and how I realized that it doesn’t take as much time as I thought it would to tackle days worth of dishes. Well, fast forward to today when I have a new routine without a dishwasher (because it’s not in the budget to replace the broken dishwasher right now), and I hand wash ou dishes every day and I have them under control in 10 minutes or less. Thank you again! Keep blogging, and I’ll keep following!

    I love that the concept of containers is directly related to the more spiritual discipline of contentment. Preach on, Dana!
