At our house the cook doesn't have to do dishes - unless he/she makes a HUGE mess when cooking. I have found clean up is a lot easier if I run the hot soapy water before I start cooking and wash things up as I go along. Sometimes the only thing left after the meal is the dishes from the table. Makes clean up a lot easier & the added benefit is stuff gets put away right away and no temptation left out for a BLT (bite, lick or taste):)

I keep a set of extra running clothes and shoes in my car along with a couple of bottles of water and baby wipes (for quick clean ups). Some times opportunities for a quick run or walk just happen and this way I am prepared- a quick change in a public restroom and I'm off & running!
I use the plastic tops from margarine tubs and the like as coasters for items in my pantry and bathroom. The plastic coasters will keep drips from syrup bottles, bathroom cleaners, etc from staining the shelf and they are easy to rinse off!
