So Annoying!!

For some reason, our dishwasher has decided to leave soapy residue on all of our black plastic cooking utensils. Not pretty!! So we either have to hand wash them from now on, or find an inexpensive bundle of new ones when we move and try out our new dishwasher. Any suggestions as to how to avoid this problem?


  1. Yeah don't put those (or any new ones you get) in the dishwasher. They may say they are dishwasher safe but I've found that, esp. the plastic ones, break down much faster when washed in a dishwasher. That doesn't solve the soap scum problem I know! I'd also make the switch to bamboo if you can (non-plastic, eco-friendly, last forever (hello-Dad's cutting board?!) and are super easy to clean).

  2. Thanks K. I LOVE our bamboo spoons, but I guess I need to expand my bamboo collection. What about spatulas though?
