  • I clean as I cook. I hate finishing a meal and having a big mess to clean.

  • i clean as i cook, but face it it's not going to be completely clean until you finish though lol. i always throw away any packages, skins, peels, shells, etc. as i clean though and try to put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher as i am done with them. but i can't clean the stove and pots until the end of course lol

  • Clean as I cook, that way it doesn't seem like there's so much to do when the meal is over and I can relax.

  • I usually do it at the end but yesterday I did it during. I was already doing dishes so as I finished with something from supper I washed it up.

  • As I cook. It seems like a waste of time to stand or sit there while things cook and let the dishes pile up.

  • I do both. I put things away as I use them. I clean up in the spare minutes while I am waiting. I wipe down the counter when I take things to the stove. But there is always a little more that needs to be done at the end. It is just so much easier when you do it as you go.
    I try to show this to my husband. He says he will do it after. He doesn't. it is a real pain.

  • Clean as I cook and will wash the pots and pans before I sit down to eat.
