Simple bachelor trick — How to use your dishes without having to wash them

Sep 21, 2012 By Abraham

Nobody wants to wash dishes, but everybody keeps doing it anyway.

Well, not anymore. Not with this ingenious life hack…

Step 1: Grab your one (perennially clean, thanks to this trick) bowl and a plastic bag…

Step 2: Insert bowl into bag and food into bowl.

Step 3: Eat.

Step 4: Discard plastic bag.

Step 5: Voila!

Awesome. There are clearly no downsides to this strategy.

        Man, you’d be hungry at my house. Told the husband you can have a homecooked meal or sex… Guess which won? Well, I guess we both do in this situations. :)

    1. Seb says:

      How about NOT washing your dishes, like a man. Real men don’t have time to wash their dishes, nor do we mind eating in dirty dishes. More time to grunt and drink beer and do backflips. Speaking of which, hold my beer dudette!

        1. Vitoria says:

          I think it’s a regionally based euphemism. I grew up listening to dudette in the 80’s in South Florida. The use of “ette” implies a French feminization, and we have many Haitians here. I think “ine” would be indicative of a Germanic origin. Perhaps you are from a predominantly German area?

          1. Reid says:

            from what I have heard dudette is used in Canada as well. Like you said, due to the French feminization. I’ve also heard surfers use that term, so who knows?

    2. That Guy says:

      I mean, I was gonna, but I decided to play videogames. With my left hand. While chopping down a tree in the backyard with my beard and ridding my property of a badger infestation with my right. Single-handedly. And I had lunch with Captain Planet afterwards, he’s cool with it.

  1. Toni says:

    You could also just eat the food straight from the can and save even more time and/or dirty dishes(pan, etc.) If it is cereal, cram handfuls into your mouth straight from the box and glug a portion of milk right from the carton, eliminating one of the worst dirty dishes of all, the Milk Sludge bowl.

    1. Lee Shelton says:

      It would make more sense to put the food into the bag, mash it up, snip a corner off the bag, and then squeeze the food into your mouth. You can dine like an astronaut!

  2. Lee Shelton says:

    That looks like a produce bag from the grocery store, which means it probably isn’t clean. Of course, you could wash the plastic bag first before using it, but then that would kind of defeat the purpose of avoiding soap and water.

  3. James says:

    Wow… I was excited when I saw the article, now I’m just a little disappointed… this is terrible. This is so anti-green and lazy it’s just pathetic. I mean, I’m no green nut, but this is a bit over the top, don’t you think?

  4. Kristina says:

    Wow, what an energy-saver. Now he only has to wash the spoon. And the pot, and the glasses, and the coffee cups, and that gross bucket that’s under the sink with the trash can.

  5. PhilA says:

    no downside? unless you want to eat with a knife or fork, or want to eat hot food… yup, no down sides at all if all you eat is cereal :-P

  6. Danielle says:

    No one mentioned just getting paper plates and plastic Bowles with plastic ware no washing dishes at all not even the big spoon that was used … Btw cling wrap would be better then a grocery bag just guessing

    1. Lacey says:

      if you are gonna be this lazy please use paper products instead of plastic so they can at least be recycled or biodegrade. seriously where do you think all that plastic ends up, 90% of it is not recyclable and it is killing our planet.

  7. nutless_neo says:

    What about the dishes you used to COOK your food?! If you’re going to come up with an idea like this – you probably want to think it through from the beginning to the end – not just the end. Stupid!

  8. Lacey says:

    wow, i hope those bags are recyclable. otherwise you are hammering the nail in mother earths coffin, all so you wont have to wash the dishes. wow, thats lame and just pure laziness. watch the movie “Bag It”, and hopefully it will open your eyes to the problem of waste and inspire you to start living your life differently.

  9. Lisa says:

    This is what the Chinese do at every hole-in-the-wall restaurant in the country. It’s nothing new. You should see them buying soup in plastic bags… seriously.

  10. Name says:

    The only thing that is killing this planet is comments from stupid people complaining about people “killing” the planet. Let me know when the Earth starts to melt into toxic waste. In the meantime, I’ll be living my life normally. By the way, PETA wants its opinions back.

  11. Common Sense says:

    You know there’s like a huge plastic disposal problem and an island of plastic and garbage the size of Texas just floating around in the middle of the Pacific just, you know, not making our planet all that habitable. Just sayin.

  12. YouSeeIt says:

    The best part about this is how all the women’s comments are “I can’t believe you’re actually doing this, you environment-hating lazy evil awful beast awkawkawkawkimtakingthisallsoseriously” and the men are like “uh, it’s called ‘satire.'”

  13. JustaNother NonnyMouse says:

    If you think, for one minute, that we are “killing the planet” or that we need to save the planet – may I suggest you Google – & then watch – George Carlin on Global Warming. He is 100% spot on.

    Buncha self righteous environmentalists.
