With so many living without the privilege that is in-sink garburators, the invention of those little kitchen sink catchers have saved many from plumbers-crack rescue calls, and even more cherry tomatoes from meeting an untimely fate during their wash. But far too often, these hard working and hungry devices are defiled. I’m not sure inanimate objects feel pain, but the stink of old food has gotta hurt.
On one hand, I don’t blame my partner for wanting to avoid the vile discomfort that is having partially digested bits of food stuck under your nails. But even that is easier to digest than cereal that has become so soggy, it can’t be lifted.
I’m not sure why we have a menagerie of sponges, scrub brushes, and cloths if not to keep the sanctity of our kitchen in tact. I’m none too interested in having to creatively force sticky bits of leftover smoothie dates out of a grate, especially when that’s just following the first of three recommend meals daily.
