After every use, if rinsing and wiping with a paper towel qualifies as "washing".

wash dish

I feed dry chunks, so the food dish pretty much takes care of itself, but I do swish out her water dishes inside and outside to make sure there is no establishment of the slimy green stuff.

They go in the dish washee every night. From the looks of the other posts, I must be anal..... but how hard is it to stick them in the dish washer? :roll:

Dude you are killin' me!

I would suggest the following link, especially if good ole ELBOW GREESE and the 1.5 minutes it takes to wash a bowl well, won't work. :lol: :lol: :lol:

http://www.homedepot.com

If you click on appliances, you can get one for $149. :wink: :wink:

Good luck, and good washing! :lol:

You would not belive how clean the dish is when Ace gets done with dinner. It takes him about 5 minutes to finish dinner, then about another 10 to get tired of licking his bowl. I wash it once in awhile but honestly, I use one of those stainless steel ones and it shines!

how could anyone eat out of the same plate for a week without washing it?
When I saw Phideaux licking his own azz, I figured a sparkling dinner bowl is not high on his priority list... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I realize my dish washer has blessed with 2 lovely daughters but I don't think the dog bowl will fit.

I don't wash the FEED bowl that often (dog gets only dry food with added oil)and he licks it clean at every meal, but the WATER bowl I keep it VERY clean. My reasoning is bacteria have a much easier time in a wet environment.

Does banging it upside down on the concrete to knock out any bugs, dust, or whatever count?

I feed mine in the stable and while I don't wash them after every meal, I always pick them up when the dogs are through and stick them in the feed can so vermin and flies don't crawl all over them.

Don't you think saliva + (dry food residue + oil residue) = bacteria, as well? Personally, I think that would be a MUCH more potent environment for bacteria growth than water (especially if it is tap water, which is treated, and the bucket is exposed to sunlight most of the day.)
