We question Goldie Hawn’s dishwashing technique, but not her skills

It’s a Monday morning and we’ve already hit you with a dire aluminum can shortage, some bleak news out of Florida, and a bear who couldn’t even find the pizza it sought. As a palate cleanser (since your typical palate cleanser of LaCroix might be threatened by the aforementioned aluminum can shortage), we offer you this video of Goldie Hawn doing the dishes with her family, finding ways to turn a chore into a workout routine.


Some thoughts here:

  • The aesthetic choice to mix athleisure with expensive jewelry is one that Goldie has either made accidentally or on purpose, but in either case, it is working
  • The plate going into the cabinet is far too wet! Who’s slacking on drying duty?
  • Goldie’s intimately familiar with “Hey Ya!” otherwise she wouldn’t have raced to return to the sink just in time for the chorus
  • The inefficiencies of Goldie’s washing technique leave designated dish dryer Boston Russell a lot more work to do, ultimately, but he doesn’t seem to mind
  • Anytime a celebrity, or anyone else, has the option to go with the red knobs on their Wolf range, they should absolutely do it
  • Do those countertops look gray or green to you? This absolutely doesn’t matter, but I like thinking of other excuses to stare at Goldie Hawn’s lovely kitchen.
  • Speaking of this palatial kitchen and its many lovely fixtures... is there not a dishwasher installed to handle all the work while Goldie and her family dance with abandon?

Only suggested improvements to the next dishwashing video are as follows:

  • Could use more dog
  • Could use more Kurt

Pretty sure that’s Wyatt Russell (of Lodge 49), her biological son. Not Boston, her stepson.

The red knobs are standard on Wolf ovens. Personally, I don’t really care for them since I think they clash more than they “pop.” They aren’t as bad in her kitchen as they would have been in ours.

You can get either chrome or black for free (they still give you the red, if anybody needs red Wolf knobs) when you initially order. If you change your mind later, you have to buy them and a set for that 60" Dual Fuel range costs $340!

The dishwasher is probably to the right of the sink, out of frame. It may have a panel to match the other cabinets and be difficult to see on a quick video.
