Do you wash your dishes multiple times a day (without a dishwasher)?

in order to keep a clean kitchen do you wash your dishes more than once to keep the sink empty? im not that much of a neat freak, i usually wait until the sink is mostly full before i wash, which is every other day, but it irks my mom to death and if she comes over she HAS to wash them even if there is only 5 in the sink. i dont really see the point to it but she makes me feel like the whole house is dirty bc of a few dishes lol

  • lol, thats the way my stepmom is. Usually I like to have the dishes done, just because I'd rather do a few, than stand for awhile and do alot.

  • When I didn't have a dishwasher, I washed after breakfast, lunch and dinner. Otherwise, no I can let dirty dishes sit in a sink.

  • I'll let some sit, soaking but usually don't like dishes in there.

  • Before I had a dishwasher, I would make sure all the dirty dishes were rinsed and stacked in the sink. Then I would wash them all at one time - at night - after DS went to bed. Now I have a dishwasher and we like to make sure that the dishes get in there as we go through the day.

  • We have a dishwasher and when it's hubby's day to do the kitchen the dishes sit ALL DAY .. it drives me nuts when they get so high I can't get water but it's the way he does things he just loads it all up after dinner.

    Me I do the dishes after each meal, anything that is put in between meals just sits till after the next meal. I don't mind dishes in the sink as long as I can still get water from the sink without having to move stuff to put my bottle sideways or something.

  • Yes, I do dishes about 3x a day. Sometimes we dont have enough dishes to not do them that many times. Plus it just makes the whole kitchen look better.
