Yes! Another delicious meal cooked and eaten. Enjoying the food coma that we put ourselves in. In a great mood until you see all those dishes used for cooking and ruins the mood. Why does this happen to us? Why does it ruin our mood? There are some correlations to this chore.
The first reason is that there is not energy left in us. Think about you were chopping, sauteing, standing, and flipping your food. Also, eating a hearty meal can make you feel lethargic. The last thing on your mind is to waste more energy.
Time. The only resource we can never get back. You took an hour to cook and 30 minutes to eat. Now, you have to waste more time to clean! Not happening in my book.
Wasting resources does major damage to the Earth and washing dishes by hand is not efficient. You are wasting more water than using a dishwasher. Of course if you only used like 4 dishes than just wash it, but I have never used less than 7 dishes when cooking. Also, the disher is better at cleaning dishes than by hand.
The last reason is there is no pay off. What? I get clean dishes so what?
What is you least favorite chore?
