the process by which things are destroyed in the house if they are too weak or poorly designed. for example, if a carpet is destroyed by a vacuum cleaner or a container melts in the microwave. this weeds out the sick and weak household items that do not deserve to survive, allowing the better-constructed items to thrive.
the plate that melted in the dishwasher is just another victim of domestic selection, as it apparently did not deserve to survive.
