have been thinking tonight, and i far prefer hand-washing dishes. the apartment i currently live in has a dishwasher, but i hadn't had one since the place i moved out of in summer 2011, and fell out of the habit of using one. haven't used the one in this apartment yet, and i don't intend to.
it's kind of relaxing to put on some music or a podcast and wash all the dishes and wipe the stove and counters (and then realize that i'm hungry, but don't want to cook and ruin the nice clean kitchen!)
how about everyone else? dishwasher or hand-washing, and why?
