Replacement for Dishwashers

Why aren't we using high pressure blasters?

Well, when I was a kid (not long ago) I used to wash dishes at a restaurant using this high pressure water hose. You could clean almost anything in less than a second flat.

The main drawback, I am repeatedly told, is that water splashes everywhere. While a pro can learn to redirect it neatly, it doesn't make sense for common household usage.

What if you had a flexible plastic sheet covering the sink? Then you could stick your hands in there and wash things up. No extra machinery, nothing to break, no rinsing before stacking before taking it out again.

Another idea is to use pressurized air, which would eliminate the hazards of splashing, and remove one's need to dry the dishes. Just put it in and blast away.

Just a half baked idea. : p

       I would like to replace my dishwasher with a tumbleweed dispenser.

       In my mind you could also use this to handle radioactive material.   

       In my mind. [+]

       I was thinking the same thing - One of those isolation booths, with great big thick rubber gloves so that you never have to actually *touch* the washing up. In fact, it's so good, I'ma post it.
