We have a dishwasher, but I like to wash some of our larger items, such as the big cutting board, by hand. So, we still have a dish wand. However, for the past year, it has sat awkwardly around the sink leaving/wasting dish soap residue. When we moved back, we had dinner with our friends Darron and Miranda...or "Darranda", as we like to call them. I noticed this in their sink and asked about it. It just so happened they had an extra one...HAPPY DAY! Anyways, this thing is awesome and that's what I have to say about it.
