greenville nc: Are Household Myths Costing You Money? - 11/01/11 05:06 PM
Far too many consumers hold beliefs, supposedly based on conventional wisdom, that simply are not true and may actually be costing them money. So, it’s time to debunk these theories and set the record straight!
HOUSEHOLD MYTHS:
1. You must rinse dirty dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.
Your dishes won’t get any cleaner, according to tests by Consumer Reports. Just scrape off excess food into the trash or garbage disposal. Another reason not to pre-rinse is that by doing so, the detergent doesn’t have any grease or grime to stick to, so detergents attack dishes instead, making them appear … (1 comments)
