Who does the dishes?

Is it always you? Is it always him? We try to do the deal where whoever cooks, doesnt have to do the dishes.

  • ALWAYS me. NEVER him. He doesn't have a clue where the sink is. He leaves his dirty dishes in the living room.

  • That's a bit complicated for us. I use the dishwasher..we have no problem getting a complete full load at the end of the day. Hubs will fill the sink with soapy water, wash the dishes, put them on a drying towel, and leave them and the sink full of soapy water till the next meal. This gags me and annoys me, so I will empty the water put the dishes that are sitting on the drytowel into the dishwasher. So I gues we both do them sort of. But in the end the DISHWASHER does them

  • Well in my house I do the dish's for me and my Husband and my son does his own when he eats. When i am at work and my Husband messes up the kitchen he cleans up after himself.

  • always DH, I very rarely wash dishes, that is just how it works for us, he doesn't cook or clean bathrooms, and I don't do dishes :}

  • Both me and my boyfriend do the dishes either we do it together or separate. If he does the cooking I will do the dishes and if I do the cooking he would end up doing the dishes.
