A - up.

But which way does the TP come off the spool:

A: over
B: under
C: however the lady of the house says.

I like it up as it helps get the harder to clean items clean. However, you then have to grab the business end to put them away which is somewhat less sanitary than the handle end being up. 

 

The ideal situation is two dishwashers. You alternate loading one and setting from the clean one. rarely have to put things away...

Definitely up.

 

On tp, I would say over is most correct.   Unless you have pets or small children, then go under.

Now the real question...  milk first or cereal first?    I go milk first so the cereal doesn't get soggy.  Pay as you go approach to cereal pouring.

Business end of sharp things down.

Thin handles go up..... just in case something is small enuf to poke thru the holes and trash the water arm thingee.

This thread sent me in search of my official H stamp (from when there were actual sand filled ashtrays inside the hotels).

Thinking mean kiwi took it.

Give it back @ordo.

A-yup! For those who have houses with forced air heating, the current picks up the paper and starts flapping in the breeze. This prooves irresistable to cats, and they just HAVE TO sink their claws into a soft yielding roll of t.p. that is flapping in their faces. After a while it isn't cute to re-spool a half mile of t.p. with claw marks in it, so you leave the roll in a cabinet.....

I agree partially with @flipflopgirl

sharp objects face downwards (far too many fingers have been nearly lost)

spoons, butter knives - up,

larger-smallish implements go in the upper rack, 

ie. ice cream scoops, small tongs, spatula, etc.

 

As to the TP issue, I find that men's rolls go under and women's go over ... right brain/left brain kinda thing...go figure :smiles:

Years ago Dear Abby said business end up for the dishwasher.;)

 

If it was good enough for her it's good enough for me. :thumb:

 

 

Now as far as T.P. goes... Over is the only way. :D

 

If you're an under person then something is wrong with you. :crazy:

Or still in the cabinet in the hall just outside the bathroom door.

 

The house is full of people from work and the door is locked as well.

Do you yell for help.....or face the inevitable?
