No Dirty Dishes Day

Did you know there is a No Dirty Dishes Day? A day you could celebrate by either not washing any dirty dishes or by washing all the dishes you can!

Dirty Dishes

Dirty dishes, part of life. A lot of time, money and energy is spent every day on washing and drying dishes and putting them away. This unofficial holiday with unknown origins encourages people to take a break from doing the dishes for the day and spend the time saved doing things for fun.

Keep Sinks Happy

Whether you’re a mother, father, sister, brother, or roommate, no one likes dirty dishes. That is why we celebrate National No Dirty Dishes Day. A holiday most likely created by an upset parent, National No Dirty Dishes Day has sinks around the world rejoicing at the thought of having a light workload and a clear space on this day. So keep sinks happy, and do your part by saying, “NO” to dirty dishes.

Go Out To Eat

Cooking at home means getting pots, pans, and a lot of other dishes soiled. Make No Dirty Dishes Day even more fun by eating all your meals out – make dirty dishes someone else’s problem for this one day!  Of course with the virus restrictions right now,  you can get take out. Then just throw away the containers they come in after enjoying your meal.

Use Paper Plates

If cooking at home is necessary, use disposable plates, cups and silverware for all meals and snacks. This quick switch will keep your sink clear and make clean up a lot faster, allowing you more time to enjoy doing what you desire. Remember to use paper plates that are environmentally friendly.

However you decide to celebrate No Dirty Dishes Day, do something that makes you smile, enriches your life and helps someone else.

Be thankful for dirty dishes since that means we have food to eat and possibly family and friends to eat it with. So many are lacking both of those.

If All Else Fails…

If all else fails and you still have to dirty some dishes, clean them right away. Start by cleaning any dish that may be in your sink, then wash everything you use thereafter, leaving your sink and kitchen is all clean and sparkly.

OR

Don’t wash any dishes and pile them up. But remember, after No Dirty Dishes Day, you will have to clean them sometime soon, even if you take a break today.

Schedule

Hate doing the dishes day in and day out? Use this day to draw up a schedule and a plan for cleaning dishes every time you use them. That way, you’ll never be stuck with a sink full of dirty dishes!

Being Thankful

Be thankful for dirty dishes since that means we have food to eat and possibly family and friends to eat it with. So many are lacking both of those.

Other Possibilities

If you don’t own a dishwasher, maybe today is the day to get one installed. Choose an energy efficient washer. There are many environmentally friendly detergents.

Did You Know…..

…that the first iterations of dish washing machines were all hand operated? Hand operated dish washers still available (besides the kids).

However you decide to celebrate this fun holiday, do something that makes you smile, enriches your life and helps someone else.

Washing the world with thankfulness,
