Food For Thought

I recently bought a new bottle of dish detergent. This is a rare purchase for me, because I wash hardly any dishes by hand. The main reason for this is that I have a dishwasher and usually wash everything in it except my good silver and crystal.
If it isn’t dishwasher safe, too bad. If it’s ruined, then I can throw it away, but I’m not going to wash it by hand.
