As often happens, some dishes got a bit dirty. So I put a little bit of detergent into the dishwasher, and turned it on. Easy peasy, no? I grew up without a dishwasher, so I'm not especially accustomed to this magnificent machine.
As I was sitting in my bedroom watching "Millionaire Matchmaker" online after having finished leftover quesadilla, my roommate yells across the house "What did you put in the dishwasher???" I come out, stating that I had put in some dishes and dish soap.
Upon reaching the kitchen, my jaw drops as I take in the sea of foam that used to be our kitchen.
Moral of the story: detergent used for handwashing does not work for a dishwasher. Be warned!
