and then they give it back. Do you wash it or just put it away?

I would wash it. I would do this no matter to whom I lent it. It's just how I roll-- I would feel better knowing that I, personally, had washed it.

Wash it. Doesn't matter who it is. It's just what I do.

Knowing that things have rolled around in my car for a bit before they actually made it home to the person it belonged to, I would wash it.

Wash it..........probably hand wash. We don't most of our dishes by hand though.

I don't wash it when I get it back, but I wash it before I use it.

Is it cleaned when it's returned to me? No. That's wasteful.

I would wash anything I received back. It might have been well washed already and then set on a chair to go to the car and the family pooch stuck his nose in to see if it still contained food.

I can't imagine anyone returning a dish without washing it, so if it was clean when I got it back, I'd see no reason at all to wash it again.

If it were my mom returning it? No.

Anyone else, I would at least rinse in hot water but probably quickly hand wash it.

I've yet to send bakeware or containers to anyone but close family and friends. That being said, I can't recall a time where I've re-washed anything from them.

after losing a beautiful plate, I no longer send out food in my dishes.

I buy the disposable stuff to send/take.

thread stealing.
We had a belief that is bad luck to send a plate back empty.

I would return your container with a batch of brownies or cookies in it with my thank you card attached.

You can wash it after you eat the brownies! No one's offended then, silently or otherwise.

I wash it because even if they washed it there were likely things that touched it in the car, being handled in between, etc.

We have "fireside" chats in front of our huge outdoor fireplace, and one of our neighbors brought muffins a few weeks ago and left the plate and leftovers. I just returned it to her, after it had been washed and filled back up with treats.

Given the fact that I would only give baked goods in my bakeware container to my closest, most intimate friends/family, I would not wash it.

Hello, is this thing on?

You can wash it after you eat the brownies!

I've been here long enough to know that 98% of the peas would toss your brownies in the trash. They don't eat food made in someone else's kitchen.

I wouldn't re-wash a dish, and I'd eat your brownies. I'm not afraid of germs.

You are a pea on the edge!

My decision to wash or not wash would depend on who's house it came from or if it had been rolling around in DH's vehicle.

I'd just put it away, but I generally quickly hand-wash bakeware before I use it because it tends to get a little dusty in the drawer (we don't use bakeware often).
