well, i cant see my kitchen all messed up early morning when i open my eyes. i clean it up after my dinner and set all the things before hands. in the mornings i just hurry up for the breakfast and lunch thing. my hubby and father in law moves out . now i dont go out in the morning. so that is a bit rest . i have to look after my baby . now she has turned two so she has to help me in each and everything i do. that is one reason that i complete my dish washing in the night.

I always wash dishes after each meal. I can't stand my sink with dishes and all the mess around the kitchen. I always want to keep my basin sink clean and the whole kitchen the possible i can. I don't want to see ants or any insects crawling to dishes(uh uh). It's one of the cleanest part in my house...since food were to be prepared in the kitchen.

Hi, aweins. I usually will wash the dishes in the mornings when I will wake up. If I am not too tired, I will wash them at night. It just all depends on how I am feeling. But I will make sure that they are washed up.

best thing is to complete in the night so that it will be free in the morning hours.and even we dont feel irritated. and by the way dont your hands get chapped becuase of washing vessels. my hands become rought and even sometimes painful.

After dinner! B/c when you wake up in the morning you don't want start cleaning right away! You want to wake up peacefully do what you want to do get ready etc then clean fix your bed and all that. Well that's what I do anyways! It's so cold out here right now I still need to fix my bed for the day! And I barely ate bfast I don't want to move from the couch at all! LOL!

After I am finished eating, I like to rinse my dishes let my food digest and throughly wash them later in the evening.

We can use some approach to let our family members wash dishes actively, setting an washing award, for example. Or we can set some punishment to push this job, that is the guy who finish dinner at last will have to wash dishes. Moreover, what make me surprised is that your baby can help you do many chores and she is only 2 years old? How amzing!

In our apartment, it really depends whether the people here are too lazy or not. LOL. Sometimes we wash the dishes, sometimes we don't. It would be washed in the morning, or sometimes even before lunch. hehehe. The only main thing is, if the sink is too full of dirty plates already, or if there are no more clean utensils to use then the person who would need the utensils have no choice but to wash the dirty dishes. Hahaha.

I used to hate this chore but then I came up with a strategy! When I'm cooking my dinner at night I make sure that I fill a bowl with boiling hot water before the meal! By the time I have finished my meal the water is no longer boiling hot but warm and I can then do the washing up immediately. I think this definitely works for me. I used to do the dishes in the morning but this used to create such a mess and there used to be a terrible smell as well, I wasn't going to put up with that any longer! Andrew

as i am a home maker, i clean up after every meal. i like it that way as the dishes and pots are all washed up , dried and returned to their original places. the kitchen and dining area look neat and welcoming. perhaps its the way i am brought up. everything has to be washed and cleaned before retiring for the night. its a good motto.when i wake up the next morning, everything is in place and its relaxing to prepare a hearty breakfast for the family.

Well yes it's really a good sight when u wake up and make coffee and you see your kitchen neat and organized.We are always busy in the morning and having a pile of dishes will just add loads to our long list of "things to do". Beside we don't want those critters playing on dishes in our sink .

Best way to make home works complete is smartness of all ladies. I always clean up at afternoon, coz i dont sleep at afternoon and i have less work that time. I will have my best show at tv or songs at mobile and complete my washing work. I never do night, coz my hubby and kids thats the time i spend for them. So afternoon is my best time!

i always wash my dishes every after meals to avoid any pest like cockroach or mouse/rat crawling in it. as even if i dont have them once i always stock my dishes im sure it will invite those kind of pest into my house. even garbage i dont keep them up to the next day, i always throw it every night.

i always wash dishes right after i use it. i don't want to see my kitchen in a mess because for me, the kitchen is where the cleanliness should start. i see to it that everything is in order inside my kitchen, after all, this is where the food of my family will be prepared.

Hello aweins, same with me. I prefer to keep my kitchen clean. I just wash the dishes and leave them on the shelf to dry up and in the morning I put them on shelfs. Turning on kitchen light in the morning and finding dirty dishes in the sink, puts me off.

I've always liked having a clean kitchen so I clean up shortly after dinner...or my husband does. I also don't like to let food sit in pots and pans for very long because it becomes harder to get off if it's dried and stuck. When I get up in the morning it's nice to have room on the counters and to feel like I'm in a clean area.
