My husband, SirSkatesAlot, just got home from a week away, so he is feeling especially helpful this weekend.  I appreciate any and all help right now, don’t get me wrong.  Yesterday, in his flurry of housecleaning and helpfulness, SirSkatesAlot ran the dishwasher with the liquid soap used for washing dishes in the sink. Easy mistake.  Both the dish soap and the dishwasher soap live under the sink.  Although it has never happened to me, I guess I can understand how one could mistake the white dish soap with the squirt top and the words “Liquid Dish Soap ” on the label for the green container with the crusty white residue on the pop top that says “Dishwasher Detergent.”  No judgement here, this probably happens to people all the time…

Have you ever seen a fountain that has been pranked by teenagers using dish soap?  Did you notice the mountains of bubbles?  You get the idea.  Just imagine a dishwasher instead of a fountain.  Bubbles are great for soaking dishes, washing hands, cutting grease and killing germs.  However, bubbles are not great in the dishwasher.  Bubbles are not great on the floor of the kitchen when they are spewing out of the dishwasher.  Worse yet, all those bubbles did not even clean the dishes.  SirSkatesAlot should probably stick to chores involving shoe goo and skateboards…and velcro straps, too.

    It’s the thought that counts and as a bonus, your floors got mopped as well, look at it as a two for one bonus. I guarantee my three other family members have no idea what soap goes in our dishwasher either.

    Ha, tell that to your halfasshandyman next time he tries to help and you clean up the pieces…said with a smile on my face.

      Yep, Sirskatesalot has a big heart and is trying mightily to help out while I am down and out. I appreciate the free entertainment even though the house is dirty. Dogs liked the bubbles, mama not so much.
