One of the worst things to see in the kitchen is a pile of dirty dishes in the sink. The next thing you know is that you have to spend an entire day cleaning it because you allowed it to accumulate. What if there was a day where you did not have to worry about, such as on National No Dirty Dishes Day?

May 18th is the day that urges you to have clean dishes as it is National No Dirty Dishes Day. How is it possible to have no dirty dishes if you have a family? There are ways to keep the workload light which means you will get to a point where you do not have to worry about having too many dishes to clean in one sitting. The good news is that when it comes to keeping your workload light, it can happen in ways that require you to think outside of the box, but not by much!

If you want to eliminate dirty dishes for that day, you can keep your porcelain dishes up in the cabinet in your kitchen. Instead, you can either dine out, or you can get paper plates to use so you can toss them away after you are finished eating dinner. Those hacks can help keep your workload clean. Or, you can always make it a priority to clean dishes after eating. Just wash them with soap and water, dry them with a clean rag, and then put them into a cabinet to be out of mind and out of sight. If you are fortunate to have a dishwasher, you can place them in there as well!
