Am i wrong?

Every time my sister comes to visit she eats and leaves the dishes in the sink, I have a son to take care of, she lives alone and has no kids but I'm tired of cleaning after her when I have a baby to clean after I feel like cursing her out because she's done this more than once, I have a routine where I clean everything before going to bed so I constantly wash her dishes any advice on how to get her to clean after herself

  • politely tell her that you would much rather spend more time with her visiting them cutting the visit short b/c you have to pick up after her before you settle in for the night. that might help.

  • When she takes her dishes to the sink, ask if she could give them a quick wipe and dry because you have to nurse your baby. Likely she doesn't realize what she's doing or the effect it's having on you, so a polite notice should hopefully work.

  • Being that she is your sister, you should be comfortable enough to tell her that she has to wash her dish after she eats. What i would do first is probably buy paper goods such as paper plates, forks, and plastic cups. Doing that will save you the hassle of even having to say anything to her if you feel uncomfortable to tell her to clean up after herself.

    Buy them in bulk so you wont run out. Good Luck!
