Just had a blazing row with "D"Bro over rinising dishes after washing them.

I went to put a plate I was washing on the drainer and he roared at me for not rinsing it


Who is the weirdo here?

Well he is for roaring at you but I do try and rinse plates and glasses especially.

I always rinse them. I don't have 'blazing rows' with people about it though. Do you have disagreements on other matters?

FaFoutis Sun 27-Dec-15 15:35:22

YABU. Not rinsing is dirty and soapy.

RoganJosh Sun 27-Dec-15 15:35:29

I don't, nor my DH or my mum, but I can see why some people do.

Ah, the great dish rinse debate! I rinse, lots of people do, but then lots of people don't! grin

Woukd you put a drop of washing liquid into a jug of water and served it?
If the answer is no then he is right but shouting at someone is not on!

He's an arse for shouting at you.

We do rinse under the tap to get rid of any residual soap suds.

Not worth a row.

YouBastardSockBalls Sun 27-Dec-15 15:36:37

Well he shouldn't 'roar' at you but YABU for not rinsing things. If you don't rinse, the dirty soap bubbles just sit there. Eww.

I rinse after washing.

VegetablEsoup Sun 27-Dec-15 15:36:58

sorry you are the weirdo you asked

areyoubeingserviced Sun 27-Dec-15 15:37:04

I akways rinse.
In fact I find it weird that people don't rinse.

FruVikingessOla Sun 27-Dec-15 15:37:12

If you've hand-washed them in washing up liquid, then they do need to be rinsed in clear warm/hot water to get rid of the WUL residue.

But your brother is rather rude to 'roar' at you.

VegetablEsoup Sun 27-Dec-15 15:37:16

bleurgh to unrinsed dishes

HamaTime Sun 27-Dec-15 15:37:22

Do you rinse your hair after putting shampoo on?

Kingfisherfree Sun 27-Dec-15 15:37:31

YABU I always rinse everything under the cold tap after I wash and then put it on the drainer.

IsItMeOr Sun 27-Dec-15 15:37:33

I never used to rinse, but do since I saw either Kim or Aggie explain why you should. I think it was something to do with rinsing them in hot water, so that you washed off any bugs they might have picked up in the washing up water?

Haffdonga Sun 27-Dec-15 15:37:56

Washing up liquid contains chemicals that are not good for human consumption. You should always rinse after washing in washing up liquid. (I was told on good authority by a senior chemist.)

btw Brits seem to be the only nation that don't rinse as a matter of course.

I always rinse. I get quite upset watching folk just stack them dripping with suds. Do you like eating soap and chemicals?

mumeeee Sun 27-Dec-15 15:38:21

I rinse cups and glasses but not plates and dishes as I find soap suds drain off of them or get wiped off easily if drying up straight away. Lots of people rinse everything though..

Enjolrass Sun 27-Dec-15 15:38:38

I rinse. I don't get why you wouldn't.

A row about it seems ott though

WhoKn0wsWhereTheMistletoes Sun 27-Dec-15 15:39:09

I always rinse but wouldn't roar about it. I don't want to eat off soapy dishes.

Isetan Sun 27-Dec-15 15:39:30

I'm a rinser and it seems strange that some people don't, after all you'd rinse your hair, clothes, car etc after washing them.

zoemaguire Sun 27-Dec-15 15:41:28

Beats me who'd want to eat off dishes with washing up liquid residue on them. Washing up liquid tastes vile. He shouldn't have shouted, but yabu not to rinse!

HellesBelles01 Sun 27-Dec-15 15:41:29

YAB a tiny bit U for not rinsing. Your brother was BVU for roaring at you.

You were BU to have a row about it. Is there a back story here?
