From grade 4 onwards, I have been doing dishes - only using a dishwasher when I did some fun stints at a restaurant. Until I was 18, perhaps even longer, I used the original Lola Brushes which my mother imported from either Germany, or Holland, depending on the shipment. Kind of ironic, since she also imported the original formulation of biobob sponges (then called SOAKER) from Europe as well, but then she bought the formulation from the inventor in 1963 and bought this building then as well. All this time, because our well did not stink and because we never liked the idea of adding any kind of salt to our water - I have managed to wash dishes, completely clean by developing the old "time and motion" study methods. For the last week or so - it took me a bit to properly install the unit - not only has it become much easier to do dishes, everything is easier. May the inventor of this product rest in a well deserved peace and with the assurance that his biodiversity positive product(s) have found an ally!
