SpoonWasher

Washes a single spoon

It's a long thin thingy, with a slot for accepting the spoon. Works on a battery and an internally closed circuit of water that is self cleaned. Extracts dry dirt in glubs at end. Perhaps a compostable paper towel would wrap each output.

When done with your spoon, stick it back in a vacant spoonwasher.

A few of those in each kitchen, and you'll always have clean spoons available. Of course they could serve for cleaning knives and forks as well.

A green light signifies that the spoon is clean.

It could be hung from the wall. They can be attached together to create a "spoonwasher matrix", in order to save space.

       Most good dogs will lick the spoons spotless and clean for free. Get dog?

       I can somewhat guarantee that even with this invention the person who finds it in their employ will continue to have a lack of clean spoonage.

       Indeed; Fermat's Last Theorem is also known as the "How to make sure you always have clean spoons" Theorem.   

       No-one has a solution.

       // I can’t imagine why the handle would ever require washing. //   

       Really ? So, how do you get the wax out of your ears, and the bogeys out of your nose ?

       Ok, that makes sense.

       I am NEVER, EVER having tea at 8th's house!!

       I'm more afraid of the bogeys I don't know about.

       Call for CAD of this device...   

       Anybody?

       I would recommend a machine with spinning brushes, stream of recycled water and automatic spoon/fork/knife movement. You just insert it at one end and pick it clean at the other. Would be useful in large kitchens.

       No. The idea is that this is where the spoon stays ON THE COUNTER. So you push it in, when done, like a shoepolish machine, and when you take the spoon its always clean. As I wrote, this is good for the smallest of kitchens.
