Do Those Dishes

You'll never guess what happened on December 28, 120 years ago. The dishwasher was invented! And even more amazingly, it was invented by a female!

Months earlier, Josephine Cochran declared with disgust, "If nobody else is going to invent a dish washing machine, I'll do it myself." Lo and behold she did just that.

She revealed her invention at the 1893 world's fair to mixed reviews and it was originally adopted only by hotels and large restaurants. The dishwasher wasn't used by the general public until the 1950s. Today of course we all depend on our dishwashers. I say we load up our dishwashers and raise a glass to Josephine Cochran for making all of our lives easier. Cheers Josephine!
