My mom and I both do the dishes (and both of us will claim we wash more than the other). I use the dishwasher we have, but some dishes are just to dirty to put in there. They need to be scrubbed to be clean.
I can't tell you how many times I've taken the lazy road and, instead of washing the dirtier dishes, I put them in the dishwasher anyway just to make my life a little bit easier.
But why do I do that--seriously?!
Because I'm making a mess that someone (be it me or my mother) will have to clean up.
There are some parts of books that are more tender--that need to be scrubbed just a little more than others to shine. Some aren't meant to shine.
Like a plastic cup--it's easy to clean, but it's not really shiny or anything like that. A saucepan, however, is hard to clean--yet, when it's clean, it shines bright and catches your attention.
Some scenes are just meant to glow, but they only will if we give them the proper attention they deserve. If not, then it won't look right--it will look dirty.
Some things are truly worth the effort, because if you put it into it, it will shimmer. :)
