26,213 washed plates break Guinness World Record


What Malaysia is good at: 

(The Star) – A total of 26,213 plates were washed using a single 800ml bottle of Joy Dishwashing Liquid yesterday, breaking the Guinness World Record for the “longest line of washed plates”.

The feat, held at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium here, saw rows and rows of washed plates laid out around the running track of the stadium, which was verified by Guinness World Records representative Blythe Fitzwilliam as being 6.8km in length.

On hand to witness the record brea­king attempt was Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, and Procter & Gamble’s chief executive officer for Malaysia, Nicolas de La Giroday.

Kurup applauded P&G for the endeavour that allowed Malaysians from all walks to participate in creating a small piece of history

“This is the true spirit of our nation that we must cultivate, where people from different races and backgrounds come together as a single united front for a common cause,” he said.

The previous record was achieved in India with fewer than 16,000 plates.
