A couple of weeks ago, my IL's were staying with us, looking for a place to live in our area. My MIL, bless her heart, felt the need to "help" me by doing the dishes.
I thanked her for her "help", but I would rather her stay out of my kitchen.
I love to cook, so everything has it's place in my kitchen. She screwed my kitchen up, completely, lol! She put cooking utensils with camelbak cleaning supplies, can opener with cutting boards, wine glasses with measuring cups. She would fill up the dishwasher and never turn it on, left knives out ( hello, I have a toddler) and stacked clean dishes where I put dirty dishes waiting to be hand washed, so i was washing clean dishes several times.
It's been several weeks and I'm still putting my kitchen back in order.
My IL's are staying with us again for a couple more weeks later this week.
How do I politely tell my MIL to stay out of the kitchen?

Either tell her she needs to enjoy her visit while there that means she don't have to lift a finger or just put up with her until she leaves you can bite your tongue just alittle longer can't you.?
