    Can Cold Water Clean Dishes?....funny

    Washing Dishes with Coldwater: A MUST READ! Can Cold Water Clean Dishes? This is for all the germ conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean.

    John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan ..


    After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.


    However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking,

    'Are these plates clean?'

    His grandfather replied,

    'They're as clean as cold water can get em.
    Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!'


    For lunch the old man made hamburgers.


    Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked,

    'Are you sure these plates are clean?'

    Without looking up the old man said,

    'I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!'

    Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass.

    John yelled and said, 'Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car'.


    Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted!

    'Coldwater, go lay down now, yah hear me!'


    Meet Coldwater !

    I'd rather be kissed by that dog than by some men I know!

    He sure is a handsome boy!

    That is a good story, nice to hear it again. I had heard it with the old man living in Minnesota and said as clean as Hans can make them.

    Thanks, Ditter, I love your posts.

    I remember reading that the Indians in the southwest used sand to clean cooking pots because water was not plentiful.

    I have my dogs, a yellow and a chocolate lab, trained so that when I yell "rinse cycle," they come to "rinse" the plates for me. I then put them in the dishwasher.

    That's a treasure for sure! I bet Grampa is immune to almost anything, too!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    I have two pre rinsers. One is "Cold Water" and the other is "Running Water." Cold water moves more slowly than Running Water, hence the nicknames. Love this story even though I've heard it before.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    We used to camp out for a month during the summer, we would start out in Wisconsin and then stay on the road and edge of Lake Superior, then around to the Canadian side. We always used cold lake water, a little dish soap and sand. When we did have soap, it was just cold lake water and sand. We never got sick. Sure enjoyed the wildlife and Northern Lights.
