Cups: Rim up or Rim down on the shelf?

Postby Timmo » Tue Apr 20, 2010 11:22 am

This is a very serious issue that affects us all.

When you are placing clean cups on the shelf after washing, do you place them rim down or rim up?

Rim down- Rim gets dirty from the shelf.

Rim up- Cup fills with dust and crap.

Lol its whichever i choose at the time, because i really couldn't care less. Although we only have 4 cups and 4 mugs in our student flat. But i think my flatmate has an issue with it being mixed up because when i go to get a glass they are all mysteriously rim down.

Oh hell. You didn't just go there.

I put everything down in the dishwasher.
Its the easiest to put in and take out.

Rim up here, a little dust won't kill me from the glass sitting in a closed cupboard for a few days :lol:

Never really thought about it though, can't believe I never knew it was such a serious issue 8O

As for cutlery, usually spork end up, with the idea it will get blasted with more enzymes and shiz :lol:

Rim up. I reckon there is minimal air movement in the cupboard to 'dust' the rim in the rim up position.

Rim up (unless its packed up and need to flip them to rim down to shove the last few in) Plus they get used in the next 8hrs so not an issue...were as I dont know the last time I wiped down the inside the cupboard lol.

Fork, spoon and knives business end up...figure the more exposed they are the better, the handles dont need it so much - wash your hands before dinner etc.

cups rim down (we've had disagreements about this at my flat). My biggest argument for it is that when you put a not-entirely-dry cup into the cupboard then the moisture can run out - but I also support the "keeping crap out of the cup" argument.

As for cutlery in the dishwasher - everything pointing down. Again, it's a bit contentious at our flat, but it's much easier to put things in/out when the handle is poking up, and I've never seen any cleanliness issues when using this method
