  • Currently hubs and I are doing them twice a day. Still waiting for the brand new replacement dishwasher.

  • The dishwasher gets ran 1-2 times a day, but I do dishes all day long.

  • Twice. We dont use our dishwasher... Haven't in over a year. It's cheaper since there are only 4 of us to do a quick load of dishes in the sink.

  • Just once during the day while I'm cleaning everything else....I should be doing it twice, so that the kitchen stays looking clean but I just can't bring myself to do it lol

  • As many times as I cook. I don't like dirty dishes sitting around.

  • Ha! When I can't stand the mess anymore. I really like to load the dishwasher/wash pots & pans after each meal, but then I get lazy and let them pile up.

  • After each meal. I rinse and load the dishwasher. Wash any pans. We rarely eat lunch at home, so 2 times a day, I run the dishwasher at night.

  • Usually once, at night. We work outside the home and in the mornings stuff tends to just get put in the sink (DH hasn't yet figured out how to put his dishes in the dishwasher!)

  • Once or twice a day depending on the day of the week. Monday through Friday once and on the weekends twice.
