Is it really necessary to wash dishes in hot water, or will cold water get them just as clean?
I don’t have a dishwasher. I get to hand wash all my dishes. Does water temperature really matter?
I can’t possibly get the water hot enough to actually kill any little nasty things that might be on the dishes. Isn’t the soap supposed to take care of that?
