My Dishwasher Unloading HackPosted by in Organizing
I despise unloading the dishwasher. I don’t mind loading it because doing so makes my kitchen look cleaner. But unloading it is so tedious. My mom gets up and unloads hers first thing in the morning. I can’t face that. I wait until it’s time to make dinner then I kick myself for not doing it sooner. My procrastination has led to my new method and hack for unloading it.
When I come into the kitchen to make dinner, I open the dishwasher and pull one of the racks out. I pull out what I need to cook and set the table. Suddenly it’s looking emptier. Then as I move about the kitchen I make a point to grab something on my way and put it where goes. So as I walk to the fridge, I snag the plastic food storage container that gets put in the drawer next to the fridge. As I walk to the pantry I grab a couple of glasses and put them in their cupboard on the way. As I head to the stove, I pull out bowls and put those away. Before I know it, it’s almost completely empty and then I feel motivated to put away the stragglers so I can start to load in the dishes I’ve used while cooking so my kitchen will start to look neat again. And somehow I’ve unloaded the dishwasher while I’m making dinner without realizing!

I like my method better. My husband does it.
Yes, that does seem simpler!
Funny how we all react differently to this dishwasher chore. I find it relaxing, while my hubby hates having to remove clean dishes. Fortunately he likes putting them in, so it all evens out.
I’m with Vera…my husband does it every morning. It’s his “thing.”
It’s the most annoying task ever. Wish we had a Mr. Vera at our house.
