A common household chore I hate is cleaning up and doing the dishes after supper. Although my sister Emily and I rotate this harsh act every other night I am always trying to finagle her into doing it for me. To me doing the dishes is a form of punishment that no one should have to endure. There are just a few little jobs to be taken care of in the process of cleaning up after dinner. The first step that should be taken is getting the condiments off the table and putting them away. The condiments include items such as ketchup, mustard, salad dressings, salt, pepper and others like these. These things should be put where they belong and out of sight.

Close it again and close the dishwasher. When the counter is cleaned off, you have to find the powder-like detergent that goes into the dishwashing machine. You may wipe the water so that it goes into the dishwasher so it doesn't drip on the floor. Then set it in a dish rack in order for it to air-dry. This keeps them from going on the floor. It is usually located below the sink in a cabinet. Wiping the counter off with the sponge should clean this up. This is done the same way as rinsing but you must add an additional product to the process. Otherwise, assuming you made it into the trashcan with all the food left on the plates, make sure you get everything that you can into the trash. If the food ends up on the floor, then an additional job will be added. Now that there is a big pile of rinsed dishes on the counter, the next step is to load the dishwasher. Use the SOS pad, or scouring pad, to get all the crusty parts of food to lift off the plates and bowls. Make sure you dump your handful of crumbs into the trash. The third job is scraping the dirty plates and bowls.
