    A few days ago i decided to thrill my wife by showing her my kitchen skills while she was at work. Well, I surprised me, twice.

    I loaded the dishwasher and put in the soap, and I do mean soap. Sitting there on the counter in broad daylight was a bottle of green Palmolive dishwashing soap. not dishwashing deterrgent for machines.

    When I went back about an hour later the entire kitchen floor was covered in about and inch of white foam. It took me and hour to clean it up. When I got the floor dry I fired the washer up on rinse cycle, and it did it again. Took me another hour to clean up the second layer of foam.

    Every cloud has a silver lining Bill; at least you won't be asked to do dishes anymore!
    If and when I meet a new gal, I make sure to cook a couple of times, after that, I don't have to do it anymore!

    I have done the exact same thing but only once. It sure seems logical that dish soap would be ideal for the dishwasher. How do all those bubbles get out of the dishwasher?

    You know what's worse than that? The fact that, having read that story, I'm entertaining thoughts of trying that when I get home.

    You can use palmolive/dawn in a dishwasher without making a mess as long as you dose the machine @ 3-5 drops maximum. I am what you would call an "expert"

    Bill, it was just two birds with one stone.

    Far from stupid, you're a genius. Celebrate your hard work and good fortune at finding a great way to do the dishes and clean the floor at the same time.....twice!!!

    Three to five drops? That little cup with the door on it held three, three ounces. Yes, that floor is clean.

    You should see what happens when you're 17 years old and you toss a Costco size box of Tide into the decorative foutain outside of your local country club.
