No dishwasher here except me!  Since I live alone I sometimes get lazy and just rinse my dishes really well and pile them for a day or two. Living alone can let you overlook things sometimes.

I hate washing dishes by hand, but I usually let the ones I use at night soak in some dish liquid (buy it at the Dollar Tree -- no point in paying more than a dollar for it if you don't have to!). The rest of my dishes I just use the dishwasher for.

Yes, most of the time I do dishes but the hubby will help out several times a week.  We have a dishwasher but never use it.

Yes, we have a dish washer but do not use since it's just the two of us seems like it would be a waste r it would take us at least a week to fill up, so i just washed them and be done.

Yes, I do wash dishes.  Have never been interested in a dish washer.

Well, we have an automatic dishwasher in our apartment, so I try to avoid washing the dishes by hand at all costs! But if the dishwasher is full, I will give in and hand wash, because I can't stand leaving dishes in the sink where I can see them.

Yeah but only the big items that will not fit in the dishwasher.  Have a nice day!

Sometimes we use paper plates to avoid washing dishes.  Even then, there are still cups to wash.
I've never seen the sponges shown in the picture.  Not sure what my sponges are made of - cotton???  ??? ???
I know there is a difference between bathtub/shower sponges used for cleaning your self and the kitchen sponges used for cleaning dishes and the sink itself - don't mix them up!  ;)
Sponges and rags are said to harbor lots of bacteria.  You are supposed to change the kitchen sponge once a week!  Rinsing it well after each use should allow you to replace the sponge less often.
Recently the sponges have been falling apart faster. They must be made more cheaply now.  More profit for the already rich sponge companies, assuming that everyone uses 2-4 sponges per month...

RELATED: Do you dry dishes with a towel or let them air dry in a drying rack? We do both.  Pots will have stains if left to air dry.  "Stainless steel" is a lie - plenty of stains if it isn't wiped dry right away, plus other stains from food and age.

Do you use paper towels for dishes, or cloth towels?

Do you use a microfiber towel to put wet pots and plates down?  My mom used to use a rag, which couldn't hold all the water, and was elated when the microfiber towel came into existence.  It absorbs much more water, and doesn't even need to be wrung out - just hung up to dry.

Do you enjoy playing with soap bubbles in the sink?  Admit it; it was a lot of fun when you were young.

Yes. I wash dishes my hand.  We have a dishwasher, but we never use it so its a storage space for things we never use.

We have always washed our dishes by hand. It never even has occurred to me to ever use or bye a dishwasher.
