how often do you dishwash per day? hand wash or machine wash?

I do it twice a day. There's too many dishes during the summer when the kids are home 24/7.

  • I run the washer once a day... sometimes every other day. I only hand wash if the stuff doesn't fit in the washer.

  • It depends on my mood. Sometimes twice but mostly only once.

  • I run the dishwasher an average of once a day. Sometimes it's not quite full after dinner and sometimes I end up running two loads, but average is once. I handwash all the pots and pans that don't come clean (like if I made eggs, etc) in the dishwasher and all the stuff that's too big to fit (or just takes up too much room). I do that probably also an average of once a day.

  • I have a family of 5 and we always eat in.
    I run the dishwasher up to 2 times a day.
    and I use the dishwasher unless there is to many to fit in the dishwasher and then I do up what is left. :)

    I'm afraid to get my kids to do them. lol There's something about someone else washing the dishes. lol

  • After every meal I rinse and clean the dishes and place them in the dishwasher and when the dishwasher gets full I run it
