31 Days to Make Cleaning a Habit – Habit 11
Unload the Dishwasher (or dish rack) Every Morning
One benefit of cleaning your kitchen at night instead of during the day is that the dishwasher can work while you’re relaxing.
When you wake up in the morning and walk into your spotless kitchen, you can get a head start unloading the dishwasher by pulling out a few dishes to get breakfast together. Then, it just takes a few more minutes to fully unload the dishwasher.
Unloading the dishwasher each morning has a few advantages:
- It’s empty all day so when there’s temptation to put dirty dishes in the sink or on the counter, there’s no excuse for not putting them directly into the dishwasher. (New house rule anyone?!)
- That means the nightly kitchen clean up will take far less time.
I know it’s one more thing to add to the morning routine, but I think it will be worth it to implement this habit. Thoughts?
