Top 5 Worst Smells When Washing The Dishes

Growing up I always hated having certain meals because i hated the smell of the dirty dishes in the sink. Now as an Adult who helps out with the household chores as much as possible when I'm not swamped with school work I still absolutely hate doing the dishes. Many of the sauces we use when cooking and we have on the side for our meals smell so terrible when mixed with water. Here are the top 5 grossest smells when washing dishes.

5. Chili-

How can something that smells so good when cooking, be so gross to clean up?

4. Ketchup-

Like most people I love having ketchup with fries, chicken (sometimes), and other side dishes but I try to make sure I never have any left on my plate because the smell and look of ketchup going down the sink is just horrid.

3. Peanut Butter

Peanut butter + water = NO. It gets so slimy and gross smelling, I can't even begin to explain it.

2. Ranch

When ranch mixes with hot water, to me, it smells like throw-up to be honest.

1. Spaghetti Sauce

I never care for spaghetti and have to be in the mood when it comes to choosing it for dinner. I think the reason why is because the dreaded smell of the sauce sitting in the pot waiting to be cleaned out.

Over the years I've come to the realization that anything made with a tomato base is going to smell really terrible when mixed with water and soap. I always try to have a lot of homework those nights and leave the cleanup to my mom. Times like these I wish we had a dishwasher but then I get hit with a dish towel and told we have two perfectly good dish washers called hands.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
