As someone that actually finds joy and satisfaction from doing dishes(it runs in the family), there is one part of the process that I am entirely opposed to with all of my being. Drying dishes with a towel after they are washed is asinine. I find this to be a complete waste of time as there is something else that dries dishes even better than a towel, it's called air. Just leave them there in the rack and, as though it's magic, after about thirty minutes the dishes will be dry! And for people that think using a towel avoids water spots, get over yourself, it's not like your kitchen is a high end, gourmet restaurant.
