Well at least you weren't cleaning parts in her dishwasher

But I do know a guy who has a dishwasher in his garage. He had 8 kids and his wife did not have one in the kitchen. That may have contributed to the divorce?

Bet she won't do that again. She'll have your brother come over to make certain you behave

Yeah, I would make sure he never did that again. :bigrofl:

I rebuilt/modified several Quadrajets on the kitchen table. Wife tells the story on me often. Now it's funny!

Sometimes it's easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

When I was a teenager I bought a portable dishwasher at an auction, brought it home and promptly filled it with cleaning solvent and an HH120 that I had in pieces.

If I had more room, I would do it. Just have to be careful what solvent you use.

I have a friend who was cleaning steam engine parts in the dishwasher while the wife was out. He was using a little bit of tolulene in the wash. She came home before he was done and he thought he had gotten away with this scheme until the dishwasher shifting cycles cause a little explosion from the Tolulene. The dishwasher burped flame out of the lower vent and put soot on the floor.

There was a bigger explosion right after that from the wrath of wife!

They are still married but it did cost him a brand new dishwasher and a new floor for the kitchen.

Nah, they are well into their eighties now no ill effects. The tolulene came into the picture when he realized that the parts he was cleaning was originally lubed with a green waterproof grease. The cap of lemon joy was not cutting it. He paniced and used a little bit, but enough that it made the "fireworks". Needles to say he was introuble for a grease coated dishwasher or a fire burping one.

The dishwasher was replaced before anything else. No food handling items were harmed.
