No Dirty Dishes Day
About No Dirty Dishes Day
When is No Dirty Dishes Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 18
No Dirty Dishes Day is a reprieve from the daily pile of dishes to wash and dry. Day after day, we do the daily chore of washing and drying dishes, then put them away in various cabinets and drawers. We perform this task after each and every meal, and often after snacks. Even putting them in and out of the dishwasher and running it, can be a chore. This May 18 holiday exists to give you a break from the daily routine. And if you have teenagers in the house, it gives them more time to focus on their homework.
You deserve a break from this routine. And, today is that day. The objective of this day is to have no dirty dishes. It is not intended to pile them up until tomorrow. The best approach is to avoid creating dirty dishes today. We strongly recommend that you do not pile up the dishes to do tomorrow. This defeats the purpose of this very special day.
