No Dirty Dishes In The Sink!



I put a sign above the sink stating "No dirty dishes in the sink." It's easier to get the dishes started when they are not piled in there, and it makes you feel better to have a clean sink. Also, people are forced to stack dishes as we have limited counter space beside the sink.

  • I do my dishes as I am cooking and when we finish a meal. I hate to look in or around the sink at dirty dishes. It is just training that keep the kitchen picked up and ready for what ever the sink is used for next. emoticon - by RUTHANN05
  • Good suggestion and good habit to get into. I need to work on this. Thanks for the reminder. - by GRATEFULADY
  • I guess I play games of sort in my mind. I tell myself that everytime I walk by the sink I put one thing away. In no time at all the dishes are put away. - by CHRISTINE-CCRN
  • This sounds like such a good idea. I usually put off doing dishes because I have to clean the sink out first. I think I'll try doing this instead. - by KAMAHI22
