Is there any proof that putting silverware in one way or the other cleans it better?

Edit: not that I can find. In fact, it's cleaner to do handles up so you're grabbing that when you unload.

On the topic of dishwashers, always load from the back first. Ugh people!

I was about to ask the same thing. I guess I don't have a specific unloading routine but I also can't see why it would be a huge difference.

Our dishwasher has slots for silverware to keep them separated and clean better. Knives don't for in these slots unless they go point down.

Because there should be order in the world! Proper loading etiquette for anything is always back to front. You don't want to reach over stuff that is already loaded. If you load back to front you don't need to pull the tray out during loading, but if you reverse that you need to pull it out to reach up and over for the back stuff.

Arguments aren't started in our house because I don't do my share of cleaning. Arguments are started because I am too particular about cleaning. I blame my mom!

What the heck kind of washer do you have? Our tray comes all the way out and I just stick things in there. It doesn't matter how you load it.

Next you guys are going to tell me when you take a shirt off a hanger you leave the hanger in place and don't put it to the side in the "empty hanger zone"

We throw ours in a laundry basket in the closet.

I couldn't share a closet with any of you guys!
Whenever I do laundry I have to fish through Jocelyn's side to find all the empty ones otherwise her side gets crowded. I always call it "hanger duty" in my head as I'm doing it.

Single or double space after you end a sentence?
I was taught double space and did that all during school, especially for papers. However, in HTML a double space will turn into a single so I think I've slowly stopped doing it and have gone to single space.

In my phone I do double hit the spacebar though, because that automatically adds a period but I think it turns it to single space?

I do this.

I'm the same way. Always did it for papers in school because that's what we were taught, but now I don't do it because I don't usually write formal papers.
