Ok - so I'm going to have to admit that the hubs and I are terrible at doing dishes. I think it might be both of ours most unfavorite chore. And on top of that - we are constantly asking each other if the dishwasher is clean or dirty. Because without fail, one of us will grab a baby spoon or something out of the clean dishwasher without unloading it and then the "clean" light will go off. Then - neither one of us will unload it because we think it's dirty...cycle... It's kinda ridiculous. But anyway.
I had this thought that maybe if I made a sign that clearly said Clean/Dirty then we would know and maybe the dishes would get unloaded/loaded appropriately. The hubster is going to think this is juvenile and SILLY but if it works - I'm going to feel brilliant.
I already had everything I needed, so it took maybe 2 minutes to do this. Cardboard, pretty papers, stickers, velcro, glue stick. Easy cheesey..
update: my hubby came home for lunch and LIKES the sign!!! SUCCESS!!!!
