@krayzay87:  Once a day. Sometimes we’ll skip a day if it’s just a few dishes, no pans or terribly sticky stuff.

I didn’t have a dishwasher growing up, and I don’t have one in my current house.

I basically let them pile up and do them every night.

Rinsed as they go in the sink unless it’s a pot that need to soak, then anywhere from every 3-4 days depending. Usually depending on when we run out of spoons rather than when the sink is full…

One to three times a day, depending on how many dishes have been used and what we have been doing i.e. cooking breakfast, the cooking lunch, baking, cooking dinner etc.

@krayzay87:  Usually once the morning and once at night, sometime skipping one if there’s not much there at the time.

It depends…there are periods of time when it can be a couple of days, but that’s usually when the only meal I’ve eaten in the house is breakfast and I refuse to do washing up for one bowl, spoon and glass! 

I am probably quite lazy about the washing up but I will always try and rinse it off first so that it doesn’t set. At the moment I am on top of the washing up, hopefully it’ll stay that way!

As soon as they get dirty. I just make it a habit to wash pans or utensils that I’m finished with while the food is cooking and then to wash my dishes as soon as I’m done eating. It takes all of 3 minutes and keeps my kitchen spotless 🙂

Constantly! At least it feels that way this week, lol. 

Everyday. We never leave dishes there for long at all (on a bad day, maybe an hour at most)  never over night.

once a day, just before I start making dinner. i like to have a clean kitchen before i mess it up again with my cooking! but if we go out for dinner, I usually don’t end up doing it that day. I’d love to be the person who washes up immediately after every meal but that’s never going to happen!
