I'd like to propose 'Fu' to mean some sort of feminine attractive power, and 'Manchu' is the masculine attractive power. As in "I didn't really want to sleep with that girl, but her Fu was too powerful". Or, "That Gorilla X has some serrrrrious Manchu!".
It just seems to fit, for some reason... just like '"Zazz" HAD to mean cool. It was just too Zazz not to be!
As for my dusty mugs, I still haven't unpacked them. I don't have any real handy shelves put up in the saucer house that will display them yet, so not sure whether or not to unwrap them. The debate of whether or not to make the world's smallest tiki room or not out of the computer room is still ongoing... I would like to, but in all fairness it IS the room my husband will be spending most of his time in working on the computer, and he may want to put up some of his stuff too. The clash of techno geek decor vs. tiki decor may be too much for 6.5 feet by 6.5 feet to handle.

Surely hand-washing a few mugs isn't such a hardship? Just get the gloves on, dip the mugs in the warm, soapy water and caress them clean. Mmmmm, just feel those smooth contours....pay special attention to the rim......*splash*....whoops!

I like gadgets, so I had to try it($10 at most grocery stores).
Use with discretion. I won't use it on the outside, but excellent on using for the deep/tall mugs.

Don't know anything about detergent, or the effects it will have on tiki mugs, but I do know this: You take a chance of the mugs shifting in a dishwasher and chipping....so don't take the chance.

Haven't you sat at a bar watching the bartender wash glasses and mugs" They have a sink setup with a Brush sticking up. dip in soapy water,,, up and dpwn on the brush, dunk in the rinse water a couple times and back to the glass storage bin. They all do it.

When I worked at Round Table Pizza (in high school), we had three sinks behind the bar:
1. hot soapy water with the brushes sticking up (clean)
2. cold water with a little bleach (sterilize)
3. warm clear water (rinse)
That's what I did in between serving pitchers of Bud to drunken Lomita white trash.

What about washing "Peanut" style mugs such as the PMP, since there's no glaze on a considerable portion of the mug? What success have others had with dishwasher or hand-washing?

I've never washed a bisque finish mug, only wiped them with a damp cloth, but I've never used any for drinks. I'd say avoid harsh detergents and all soaps, stick to mild detergents & use a bottle brush for the inside, a cloth for the outside.
