I'm really meticulous with them, as well. I spend a great amount of time just rinsing them before I even begin to actually wash.
I hate the feeling and look of wet food. When a pan of last night's dinner has been soaking and you dump the water out and all of this wet mush comes out....ugh....it makes me gag. I also can't stand it when I'm washing them and I see little bits of floating food in the water. This is why I rinse them so carefully. If I do see floaters, I have been known to drain the water and start over.
But, I have to do them. My husband does them quite often. He knows of my disdain. But he does so much already, I feel like I should have at least one chore besides bill paying. But every time I come home and he has already finished them, I remember how lucky I am to have him.
