Dishwashers Gone Wild!

One time I heard a story where a man thought that since one bag of fertilizer made the grass nice and green, then surely several bags of fertilizer would make it even greener.  I laughed and thought to myself that this was the stupidest thing I had ever heard.

Well, today I became that man only on a different level.  I blame the Jet Dry.


It was nothing I hadn't done before.  Load dishes, insert soap pack...pour in the monthly bottle of Jet Dry...start dishwasher.  I guess I didn't realize that the bottle we recently bought was a little bigger than usual and I poured in the entire thing.  I guess it was too much...



This is what I came home to.  Not my actual dishwasher - but same exact scenario.



I am STILL trying to clean it up...damn.  I was just trying to be cool.

ah! oh no! seriously, that's one of my life's biggest fears.. right up there with someone breaking into my house in the middle of the night. (crazy, right?) EVERY time i leave the dishwasher on before heading to work in the morning, i have flashes of what the kitchen would look like if that happened!!

That is so funny. I have done something similar. One time we were out of dishwasher soap, so I thought I could use regular dish soap. Well...you can't. I walked into the kitchen with bubbles and water everywhere!! It took me hours to clean up. :)

I did something similar with the washing machine. I came downstairs hours after I put the load in to find half the downstairs flooded. It was awful!!

Carissa said...

oh no! that picture is kind of comical but I am sure you were not laughing when you came home to find that! I hope the mess didn't ruin anything!

Leslie said...

LOL. Yeah, like one of your above posters I also accidentally used liquid dish soap in my dishwasher. Bubbles. Everywhere. My husband came home to me mopping my kitchen floor and he said, "Wow, you're mopping! Thanks hun!" I didn't have the heart to tell him that I HAD to mop. Haha.
