Why dirty dishes should not be left overnight: how it can harm
Washing dishes is not the most pleasant thing to do at home, especially if mountains of unwashed plates have accumulated in the sink after a big feast. It is also not very pleasant to wash dishes in the evening after a hard day's work.
Of course, if possible, plates should be washed regularly: this is confirmed by both elementary rules of hygiene and folk omens. Read in the article OBOZREVATEL why dirty dishes should not be left overnight.
What is the essence of the omen?
It has long been said that you can not leave unwashed dishes on the table at night. According to superstitions, this will lead to quarrels and misunderstandings in the family.
Superstitious people believe that you can not leave unwashed plates in the kitchen if you plan any trip in the morning - the road will be hard and unsuccessful.
Clutter in the kitchen can negatively affect the energy of the house. Our ancestors said: if an unmarried girl leaves unwashed dishes - love will constantly "run away" from her.
According to popular belief, leaving dirty spoons or forks in the sink meant gossip, scandals, and difficulties at work. Unwashed cups promise financial problems. And left overnight knives can bring health problems.
From prejudice to objective reasons why the dishes should not be left overnight. First, micro-cracks in pots, pans, or plates are real nurseries for harmful bacteria. This is especially true of old dishes.
In addition, unwashed dishes are a favorite place for cockroach gatherings in the evening. And the stench from dirty dishes that will meet you in the kitchen in the morning is also a doubtful pleasure.
If grease and food residue dry up and deeply fill the micro-cracks, the dishes will be very difficult to clean. You will have to use aggressive chemicals and hard sponges. Therefore, plates and pans will quickly lose their normal appearance and may even be covered with scratches.
