Who Does the Dishes?

The general rule in my house is that whoever cooks gets to sit out when it comes time to do the dishes. But it often ends up being a shared task. Who does the dishes in your house?Source

i live alone so I always do the dishes! But when I'm at my sister's house, whoever hasn't cooked is the one with dish duty.

The standard rule is whoever cooks, doesn't clean. It always seems that Hubby does them though and 60% of the cooking! He's a keeper ♥

Usually it's just me. Hubby does help out sometimes, though.

I cook and clean up. We have a dishwasher which makes the work much easier. I'm pretty particular about the way things are done so, when it comes to cleaning, I like to do it myself. Call it sick, but cleaning doesn't bother me at all. I even find it enjoyable sometimes.

Always me. Hubby works and is the money maker. I cook, clean and spend the money. :)

usually me or my partner after work, but sometimes his dad pitches in as well (we share a kitchen, have our own flat)... but when my partner was working from home it was his domain...

i do them more but husband does his fair share usually, especially in the summer when i get heat rash from wearing gloves and doing lots of things with water at work, and if i can avoid water and things at home he is usually happy to help.

We both do it together. It's just the two of us, so we never have much to do, and almost everything can be thrown in the dishwasher.

Usually my boyfriend does them (when I'm living with him) but when I'm at my parents house my younger brother and I take turns. :)

i do it more than my husband, but he does it often, usually at dinner. I work at home, so sometimes my "break" is to do lil clean up like dishes, so it just works out that way. I hate doing dishes though!
