Washing-up bowls: the Defence speaks


* Click here to listen to EPISODE 14 of Answer Me This! *

We’ve had some wise listener feedback this week, from Alex, who happens to be one of Answer Me This!’s premier jingle artistes. In response to Chip’s question from Episode 14, Alex says:

We have washing up bowls for one very simple reason. It’s for swilling! If you’re not lucky enough to have a double sink then you need space for the cold swilling water to escape and not pollute the lovely warm soapy washing-up water, or cause the sink to overflow.

So: double sink – no need for a washing up bowl. Ridiculous and senseless. I have a single sink and so am entirely justified in my purchase.

And if you don’t swill, as you’ve said yourself Helen, “the plates aren’t clean”!

Thank you, Alex, for shaking us out of our privileged double-sink-reverie. (And, indeed, without rinsing washing up isn’t worth a damn.) I feel satisfied now that the mystery is resolved. However, if YOU have a washing up bowl AND a double sink – what the hell are you playing at, eh?
