I like mustard on my french fried potatoes. Mmmmhmmmmm.

Sounds like a waste of good mustard. Oh, no. You prob'ly use that funny mild stuff that y'all squirt along yer hot dawgs, so it's not such a waste after all.

the German word bike translated into English not the other way around

We really need wsieber or by here, but:

Couldn't find anything for Bike but going with pronunciation I come up with Beichte, confession. Best I could do.

I do dare say that this is one point that everyone here has agreed upon at one time or another...

Yeah, served with Blues Brothers mayonnaise. Something to throw up on. Properly lanted, too.

Something’s been at the back of my mind about this thread and I just realized that it was the use of the words ‘dish soap’ in Zed’s initial post. My mind had skipped over it as something I didn’t quite understand but wasn’t essential that I should. Is the term ‘dish soap’ commonly used by Yousns? Over here we use ‘washing-up liquid’ for hand-washing dishes. In fact, after a meal we ‘do the washing-up’. (Or load the dish-washer.)

Dish soap is the word we US'ns use for the liquid soap used to wash the dishes and dishwasher detergent is used in dishwashers.

Is it just me, or does it seem that the 2nd link's writer is terribly anal about cleanliness?

Over here we use ‘washing-up liquid’ for hand-washing dishes. In fact, after a meal we ‘do the washing-up’. (Or load the dish-washer.)

In my household, (childhood one and current) we did "the dishes" (or loaded the dishwasher)
as children, we set the table, before dinner, (starting with a cloth for the table) after dinner, we cleared the table and did the dishes. Part of clearing the table included careful removal of the table cloth, which was furled out a window to remove the crumbs, before being folded for reuse, or tossed in the hamper for later washing.

thankfull, my mother read a pamplet from NYC board of health, that said it more sanitary to let dishes air dry, than to wipe them, (dry them with a cloth), so the sat in the drain board, and latter, my mother would empty it. (the cloth in question-- in our kitchen was always a tea towel- but nowdays, i am as likely to say kitchen towel.
paper towel were a luxury, and used scantily, nowdays, for ecological reasons, i too, use very few.. a roll of paper towels last me about 3 months!

to pick up hot pots, we used a potholder..(i know there are other term... lets hear 'em!)
