    Doesn't this shatter your glasses though? To go from hot water straight into cold?

    The dishwasher. But when I hand wash I fill the sink with a hot water & detergent & start with the cleanest of the dirty stuff first

    Nope. When I say hot I don't mean boiling- still cool enough I don't need gloves or anything.

    Exactly as my ex housemate did. I always rinsed them when he went to bed but one day he caught me and he was very offended
    I'm thinking about buying a dishwasher when we have money for kitchen renovation, it would save us water usage.

    Rinse all dishes
    Then fill sink with really hot water and soap
    Wait
    Then wash, place on drying rack
    When dishes all done I pour hot water over them to get any remaining soap off.

    Glasses first then cups, cutlery, plates, bowls, others then pots and pans

    Aaahhh ok. I use such hot water to wash the dishes and don't wear gloves so I thought you meant hot hot water.

    exactly the same as OP. a friend said to me once "'i don't get why people don't rinse the dishwashing liquid off the dishes sometimes, to me, it's like not rinsing the shower gel off your body and just letting it dry''. LOL.

    I use a dishwashing wand filled with washing up liquid and wash it under hot water. We don't normally have greasy things so that's no drama.

    Make 6 (almost 7) year old load dishwasher & turn on.
    Make 7 ( almost 8) year old unload dishwasher.

    Dishes done.

    If that fails, make husband do both jobs :-)
    I don't do dishes. Lol.
