Or you will tell me that I’m a complete idiot and going to burn in hell and people like me are ruining America, because on the Internet, there is no middle ground.
Here is my belief: when you get done using a cleaning implement, such as the broom, or the scrubby thing in the kitchen sink, the proper thing to do is to make sure it’s ready for the next person to use. In the case of the broom, that means getting the fuzz and cruft out of it. In the case of the scrubby thing, that means rinsing the bits of food out of it.
After all, does the next person really want to start their cleanup by cleaning up the thing they’re supposed to be cleaning up with?
I’m not saying that everyone can always accomplish this lofty goal. Often, we have responsibilities to jobs, families, art, community improvement, social change, or personal development that limit the time we can spend maintaining our cleaning tools.
What matters, though, is that we all agree on the CORRECT way these things should be handled.
