As research from the Council of Contemporary Families shows, you’re not alone, everyone hates doing dishes. Washing dishes is one of the most dreaded household chores. But what if we told you there were ways to avoid doing them altogether?
In this blog post, we will teach you how not to wash dishes- by either using disposable dishware or throwing them away altogether! Let’s have fun with the dishes.
How to Avoid Washing Dishes
Method 1: Throwing Them Away
The easiest way to avoid washing dishes is to simply throw them away. This might seem wasteful, but if you think about all the water and energy that goes into washing dishes, it’s actually eco-friendly!
Plus, there are now biodegradable and compostable options available, so you can feel good about not adding to the landfill.
- Gather all your dirty dishes in one room. Make sure this room is long, dark, and poorly ventilated.
- Now, open up all the windows and doors to let in as much fresh air as possible.
- Start throwing your dishes one by one into the room, making sure they smash on impact.
- The louder, the better! You want to ensure that no one can ever use these dishes again.
- Once you’re finished, close up the room and forget about it!
Method 2: Using Disposable Dishware
If you really hate doing dishes but don’t want to add them to the landfill, then using disposable dishware is the way to go. There are many eco-friendly options available made from sustainable materials like bamboo or sugarcane.
Plus, they’re often biodegradable and compostable, so you can feel good about not harming the environment. Also, you will not have to deal with procrastination about doing the dishes.
The best part about using disposable dishware is that you don’t have to worry about washing them! Simply use and throw away.
There are many different types of disposable dishware available on the market, so take your pick!
Do you want plates, bowls, cups, or utensils? You can even find sets that come with all of the above.
Once you’ve made your purchase, start using your disposable dishware and say goodbye to doing dishes forever!
- Buy disposable dishware in bulk to save money and time. You can find these products online or at your local store.
- Remove all your regular dishware from your cupboards and replace them with the disposable version.
- Now, whenever you need to use a plate, bowl, or cup, simply grab one from the cupboard and use it.
- When you’re finished, throw it away! It’s that easy.
Method 3: Give Them Away
Are you feeling philanthropic? What if you gave your dishes away after using them?
- Gather all your dirty dishes together. Once you have a good pile, take them to your local shelter or soup kitchen.
- They will be more than happy to take them off your hands and put them to good use!
- You can also give them away to friends or family members who don’t mind doing the dishes.
Or, you could sell them on sites like Craigslist or eBay. Someone out there is bound to want them!
Get creative and have fun with this method. There are many different ways you can give away your dishes if you don’t want to wash them.
Just make sure they end up in the hands of people who will actually use them!
Method 4: The Dishwasher
If you have a dishwasher, then use it! This is the best way to avoid doing dishes by hand.
- First, put on gloves to ensure no contact between your body and the dishes. Because who likes doing the dishes, anyway? Or touching them?
- Load up all your dirty dishes and let the machine do its job.
- Ensure that your dishwasher is loaded correctly to get the best results.
- Ensure that all the dishes are facing in the same direction and not blocking the sprayer arm.
- If you have any large pots or pans, put them on the bottom rack.
- And if you have delicate items, make sure to put them on the top rack.
- Once your dishwasher is full, close the door and start the cycle.
- Depending on how dirty your dishes are, it will take 30 minutes to an hour to complete.
- Once the cycle is done, open up the dishwasher and take out your clean dishes.
- Wipe down any water spots and put them away. That’s it! You’re done!
Unfortunately, if you use this method, you have already washed your dishes, and that is what we wanted to avoid! You should feel ashamed of yourself.
Washing dishes is a necessary evil, but it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. You can have fun with your dishes after using them: throw them away or give them away.
Let’s laugh it off because we will not wash dishes any longer, and we know how not to do it.
