How hot is hot enough?

I am wanting to test the temp of our water to wash dipes in...my question is, how hot (temp-wise) should the water be? I need to know if I should turn the water heater up or if it is hot enough as it is! Thanks!

Yes, still waiting for baby to come...2 days overdue today!!

We have our water heater set at warm and it's pretty hot. I can't hold my hand under the water without burning it. I know there is a vacation setting too which is cooler. I'd be afraid to turn it up all the way to hot. We have a gas hot water tank and they can really blow steam.... (long story, ours broke is how I know). Anyway, look at the setting if there is an up and down mark on your dial, that is where it should be set.

Good luck with your baby! Hope he or she makes their appearance soon.
