You know how some people put their utensils in their dishwasher with the dirty end up and the handle end down? And some people put them with the dirty end down and the handle up? After many nights performing experiments and comparing the results to a control group and plotting the results in a box and whiskers graph and solving differential equations we’ve finally devised
The Perfect System
We put things with sharp ends with the dirty end down (forks and knives), and things with smooth ends with the dirty end up (spoons). Advantages:
- Space efficient – If all utensils are oriented the same way then they get all bunched together and you can’t fit as many into the little utensil holster and they don’t get as clean because it’s harder for water to spray into such a densely packed area.
- Easier to empty – It’s super easy to pick out the different types of utensils when they’re facing different directions. The spoons are the only ones with the mouth end facing up. And usually knife handles and fork handles look pretty different.
