comment Origin, usage and meaning of “Wischiwaschi”
It's worth noting that the English etymology is completely different. According to the 1973 edition of the OED, "wishy washy" is a variation of a reduplication of "wash", meaning "kitchen swill or brewery refuse as food for swine". This would seem not to be related to the German etymology of "Wischiwaschi".
