    Missus thinks hot water is important for cleaning the dishes properly, but I am with HC on this, cold water can also get the same result if one uses the soap properly.

    I think it's a bit easier to clean with hotter water, but don't view the dishes as being any more or less clean. We haven't had a dishwasher in 6 years!

    I born and bread in Hong Kong, frankly speaking, for private housing those flat the kitchen is far away from washroom they don't have hot water in kitchen. Mostly the heater is place in washroom. I'm this case, I have ask the decoration technician to make a pipe connect to kitchen, they said it will cost a lot. Because the pipe cannot build outside of the building and it need to dig it in the floor which easily to broke the electric circuit downstairs. But for public building, it almost 100% have hot watch in kitchen by the design.

    I think the same goes for Katherine!

    So really what that tells us is that the proper detergent to use to clean dishes is actually globs of lipstick.

    BTW all you people out there with dishwashing machines (or maybe you are referring to an actual manual labor dishwarsher) and a separate dryer, I'm very jealous! Things I used to take for granted...

    There are some things I won't compromise on!

    I must admit, the last time I had a look at a dishwasher was around 15 years ago, and I wasn't too convinced it can get the more stubborn greasy crud off the dishes.

    Katherine, you spend a lot of time in Phils, no one I know there washed dishes in hot water. None of our houses there have any hot water anywhere in the house (and no kettles).
