What actually is the point of a washing up bowl?

There is a point, I remember quite distinctly me asking this question in the past and receiving a decent answer that made me feel foolish, but it eludes me now.

Try getting rid of it and do the washing up without, you'll soon realise.

I've never used one but I think the idea is you can rinse stuff off down the side of the bowl without getting the dirty water into the bowl.

Reduces noise and if your plug doesn't have a tight seal it holds water. Ultimately though I think its just so you can use the sink without having to do the washing up.

I mentioned that I had one earlier in the year and was roundly mocked for being poor. If you find this explanation then do let us know.

If you have one of those sinks with a separate little rinsing compartment next to the main sink, it's not as necessary. But it makes life a lot easier to be able to tip the dirty water out and refill it without having to dig right down and pull the plug, and being able to rinse things without the water overflowing- When I do the washing up I like to keep the tap running so I can rinse the soap suds off whatever I've just washed.

You need a double sink, otherwise you're just rinsing into the washing up water.

Also non-povvos have a dishwasher.

So you can remove it and the dirty dishes to get access to the sink, or at least when I had one that's how I used it. You ever tried to fill a pint glass with water from a sink full of soaking pots? It doesn't work.

It's very clear that this thread is divided into two stark categories of lad: Spoilt posho manchildren who went straight from mum and dad's house to having their girlfriend-cum-nanny do the dishes for them, and hard road-worn working class men who have known the toil of rolling their sleeves up and doing their own.

If you just did the washing up when it was dirty there wouldn't be anything in the way of you getting water whenever you want it.

Most people don't have sink-plugs in their kitchen. Also, some people have really big plug holes. And, kitchen sinks are quite big, and so I imagine there is a lot more water used if you fill the entire sink up whereas I guess with a bowl you need at least a third less, but I would like to see some measurements. I think the (hot) water will cool down faster if its in the metal part of the sink, too. So enough reasons.

Do people still wash-up in the bowl though? I haven't done it for years, though having recently got a smart meter and seen how much power the dishwasher uses when it's on, I might start doing it.

You can get a rubber plug with a handle for about a quid, if that.

>>439051 Running a mostly full dishwasher is substantially cheaper than repeatedly running a sink of hot water to do the same washing. The dishwasher only has to get one, maybe two bowlsworth of water hot, then sWhooshes them round for ages (with evil detergents that your hands couldn't survive). It then runs a heater for a while to dry stuff, but, energy-wise, they're pretty good.
Haven't been without one since shared house days. Just bung stuff in, run it when stuff runs out or it gets stinky or it's a sunny day and the solar panels will cover it.
One day, I'll just get a second one and alternate, no more unloading. Some stuff will get washed unnecessarily, but that's zero cost. Stuff will go in & out of rotation. Life will (continue to) be good.

Feels a bit minging to have your plates and cutlery sitting on a damp plastic shelf that's never cleaned. OPs pic is especially horrifying as the end of his spoon is proper touching that bit where a puddle of stagnant water can collect (assuming it doesn't already pool in the teaspoon - bloody animal!)

I'll leave awkward things like glasses to air dry but there's an odd satisfaction in drying a plate. I'm usually watching something on my laptop as I go so I don't mind at all.

I bought one for my final year uni flat in the first week, and the half French lass who lived with me had a thing for duck confit once a fortnight, and removed the washing up bowl to "wash up", placing an already congealed roasting pan of duck fat into the sink. I called her out on it the first time, having cleaned it in front of her, but the ring of fat was disgusting, and took cream cleaner to fully remove. I left her to deal with it after I did so the first time. Despite being disgusted, I think the point came across after two months.
Mucky bitch. She's one of those chakra environmentalist types too.

A paper kitchen towel or two to wipe off the fat (and bin it) solves that problem. The only thing soap should remove is the final film of fat.

A lot of students have no idea about housework. My friend lived in an all female house share and there was constantly skiddies in the toilet, shaved hair in the bath tub, dirty pots in the sink, dirty clothes all over the bedroom floors and just about every carpet was sticky to walk on.
