slimy dishwasher liquid on the top rack glasses
Am I just being paranoid, like my house-mates think, or is there any health damage, even if it's slight, to having slimy, mirky dishwasher liquid on my dishes? What happens is: most glasses and coffee cups have little divets on the bottoms. When turned upside down on the top rack of the dishwasher, they ALWAYS (for as long as I've been using dishwashers) have a little leftover liquid sitting in those divets. Some top rack items have hollowed out bottoms that completely fill up with said liquid. Also, occasionally tupperware will rotate during the washing cycle and fill up and stay that way. I argue that, not only should that stuff be rinsed off before simply putting back into cabinets, but that the top rack should gently be pulled out first, before the bottom rack does, to minimize that liquid falling down onto the plates and silverware underneath. Again, am I just being paranoid? I know that soap is harmful to the stomach lining and can cause diarrhea, so I use this in my arguments. Does anyone have any knowledge on such matters?
