DH and I do dishes by hand rather than use the dishwasher because it's just the two of us, and we like the ritual and the extra time together. Here's how we divide the labor:
- DH washes.
- I clear the table (anything left on the table is invisible), wipe down the stove and counter, move all the cooking and prep dishes to the counter next to the sink (anything left on the stove or island is invisible), keep moving dishes closer to the sink (anything not next to the sink is invisible), dry the dishes, and put them away.
How does the task work in your house?
