Washing the dishes has always been a chore. When the sink fills up with dirty grimy plates, pots, and cups. You fill the sink with warm water and start to pull apart the heavier dishes and only to hear the smash at the bottom of the sink because a glass cup fell. You inspect the cup carefully only to find it cracked and broken. It scares me the most when one time I tried doing that and the glass shard when up my hand causing a small gash. So whatever you do lift the cups out first and set them aside before you start attacking the heavier items. Set them to the side and clean. No one wants to wash dishes to drain the water to find fingers at the bottom. AWFULLY fingerless!
