Exactly!

Dunner, it's good that you took the time to do a scientific test to prove the situation as described by PhotoRuss was actually legitimate. It would be a shame to waste all these pages of replys on a non exsistant problem.

Others had already confirmed the problem but thanks for questioning my legitimacy all the same.

OK, so here's the upshot of it all...

I went to several stores looking at their dinnerware offerings including Corelle, other synthetics, and stoneware too. I also looked again at the offerings on the Corelle home page. I really couldn't find anything that was as lightweight as the Corelle I recently purchased and that would avoid the stick-together problem as I described in my original post.

In addition to all the silly and humorous replies in this thread there were some very good ideas and suggestions that hopefully will allow me to live in peace with the Correlle purchased, so that's what I'm going to do, at least for the time being.

The Corelle set I purchased, BTW, was one of their Livingware sets which set me back all of $27 from Walmart online. See photo.

Thanks to everybody who contributed to the thread. It has been both useful and entertaining.

How do you do that?

I've only spent two nights in the RV sine I bought it. the feedback and ideas on this site have been very helpful.
Ah! but you do have 2 sinks... i have a vintage camper with only 1! I use a drying pad underneath an x shaped drying rack across the "hall"(turn around space) in my camper for placing my dishes to dry....It appears your faucett may have a spayer... put your rack in the second sink and spray them!

Well I must hand it to you 64 responses on a thread about Corelle Wear is a fete in itself. To think that much of this actually helped and you resolved your problem, means it was well worth the exercise. I had fun but;

For a while there I thought we were going to be--- stuck.

No, I don't have a sprayer What I plan to do is to leave dirty dishes on the counter, wash and rinse them one-by-one in sink #1, and set them in my dish rack in sink #2, or put dirties in sink #1, wash and rinse one-by-one in sink #2, dry in dish rack on counter top with absorbent material underneath.

If I come across a situation where it seems the dishes might stick together I'll try to arrange them so they don't by putting silverware or something else between them or putting one upside up and the next upside down, or some other arrangement to avoid "stickage".

Interesting... I'd have figured that someone who really likes it easy would be using paper plates and plastic utensils.
