Combined Washing Machine/Dishwasher

Wash tableware and clothes in one washing machine

Instead of buying two domestic appliances; a Dishwasher and Washing Machine, just buy a Washing Machine and unbreakable Tableware. After dinner throw everything in the machine and select a hot wash. One could even combine laundry and tableware in the one load... though washing socks and underwear with cereal bowls and cups might not be recommended...

       "much greasier/filthier" - and yet, dishwashers seem to use smaller doses of detergent than washing machines. Hmm.

       I like it. However, I see lint in your future.

       A little WIBNIFTY for my tastes, expand on how the machine will work, what shape would it have? Front load, top load? Racks? Spinning? More detail please.

       [WcW] I think we're talking about an existing washing machine (front-loader, top loader - take your pick) and rather than using traditional crockery, loading it with plastic stuff that wont break.

       Sorry, this thing would be loud. And people would still keep a dishwasher around anyway for the breakable stuff.   

       If the idea were for a rack you could place dishes in and a mode that didn't fill the bin, I'd vote for it.

       this is so haphazard you might as well just throw everthing into the bathtub and wash the stuff whilst you bathe! not too good -

       I'd vote for [phoenix]'s solution

       I think that bits of food would migrate into the fabric and become enmeshed. Maybe if we had a combination device that could do either but not both at the same time.....

       No scraps with my unders please. NO NO NO!
