Dishwasher grime

If you have a dishwasher I dare you to take a closer look at the hinge area inside the bottom of the door.

Lovely, isn't it?!

I wipe it at least every month but this morning I ran a blunt blade under the rubber seal. Double urgh.

I may not do as much domestic work as I could but I do specialise in cleaning filters and drains. Maybe it is a female thing on par with squeezing zits or digging out odd bits from the body, usually hubby's body!

I hear you girlfriend... double yuck. I wipe mine down but probably not as often as I should. Dare I try the knife? Hmmm.

Take care xx

Oh yes, grime around seal of dishwasher, particularly as you say, the hinges. Disgusterous!

I don't take your dare Doris! Too scary.

What's your position on our dog bounding up to the dishwasher to lick the dirty plates as soon as we stack them!!

(I'm doing OK btw...things still tough on the domestic front, but hey...Just thought I'd look in...thanks for the tribute on the blog list!)

Also, I first read 'squeezing zits' as 'squeezing tits', which led to some confusion :).

Ugh...yes, I use a dishwasher but NO I don't want to check the grime! LOL
Won't you PLEASE come do it for me? Now I'm gonna have to hunt this stuff down & kill it.
I'm sure glad to see you're posting on a regular basis again. :)
