I CAN’T KEEP MY COFFEE CUPS FROM LOOKING LIKE THIS EVERY WEEK!!!!
(So not what you were expecting though huh?) 😉
But while you are here, can you help?
I’m serious!!! The first step in getting help is ADMITTING you have a problem.
I have a major problem!!!! Not only with dirty coffee cups, but with coffee in general, I am an addict. But let’s start with the smaller of the problems….. my coffee cups. This is disgusting! The sad thing is, the cup just came out of the dishwasher. (maybe I need a new dishwasher?!??!) That would incredibly suck because, just this morning…..
Another one bites the dust
This is my second coffee pot funeral this month!!!!
Each day, I rinse my coffee cup out with warm water, and load it into the dishwasher. (On the average, the dishwasher is run every other day). After a week or so though, my cups look like this. I don’t understand how that’s even possible.
About one month ago, Einstein told me I was “doing it all wrong”, and to prove this, he filled all of our coffee cups up with hot water, and let them soak in the sink for a couple days (periodically refreshing the hot water). YES I was mad that I couldn’t use the sink for 2 days, OCD remember? BUT, after spending over an hour scrubbing them out with vinegar, baking soda, AND a toothbrush the month before, I was more than willing to let him SHOW ME “what I was doing wrong”. (I did take pictures of him doing it his way, and I do believe he used more elbow grease than he let on, but either way the cups came clean….. FOR A WEEK!!!!!!)
Fast Forward to THIS MORNING. Not only could I not find a CLEAN cup, but another coffee maker bit the dust. 😦 I really wish someone delivered coffee in my neighborhood since I shouldn’t be allowed to drive, let alone SPEAK, until I have at LEAST a cup, but no such luck. So now, here I sit with freshly scrubbed coffee cups, and no coffee maker. I have ordered yet another new one from Amazon, though in reality I will run to Walmart and buy a ‘spare’ within the next hour. (Starbucks made a killing from me this morning)
But how do I keep my coffee cups from looking like that?!?!?!? Any help, tips, etc would be most appreciated!!!!!!! Ok tips like “stop drinking coffee” or “don’t make it so strong” will be considered offensive and I may have to kill you…only real help please.
