I sometimes hand my empty dinner plate over to my doggie for a doggie dishwashing cycle (licking it clean), but my dog leaves a "slime" like coating on the plate.

I wash my plates by hand and that slime does not come off with dish detergent.

Perhaps my plates have never been so clean before and that is actually how slick they feel when totally clean? Or maybe it is in fact a slime coating?

Spray the plate with plain white distilled vinegar and let it sit a few minutes, then wash.

That's how I clean the dogs' dishes to get rid of the slime.

Dog spit really is hard to remove. I'll try the vinegar solution on my windows!

I only let Lucy lick the dishes cause we use the dishwasher and I know the water is very hot. I would never trust hand washing to really clean after a dog has licked. We called Lucy PreWash! We don't deliberately let her lick but sometimes she climbs in the dishwasher to get a little snack when the kids are loading .

I use way too much garlic salt and pepper (and often onion poweder) to ever risk letting the dogs lick the plates (plus that's a habit id not like to start lol and they are raw fed)
but generally a vinegar soak will budge anything.

I'm curious ... has your dog ever kissed you on the mouth?

Just a thought.

No need for details ... I watch Pooch.

All that said, I'm curious about the "slime" concern. Maybe it's because I have a dishwasher ... but I don't add vinegar.

When my dishwasher was working, it took care of the slime really well. It's not working right, so I have to hand wash my dishes. So, I pull out the vinegar for the dogs' dishes to cut thru that slime.
