Why the Person Who Cooks Should Also Wash the Dishes

One of the benefits of living with another person is sharing housework, but it can be beneficial for one person who prepares meals and cleanses after meals.

At first glance, this sounds completely insane, but Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere makes a pretty strong case for the arrangement:

This approach ensures that whoever cooks is responsible for not creating a lot of clutter, which effectively minimizes cleaning time and ensures that it gets done. If you know that someone else is doing the dishes, you are less motivated to clean up on the go and use as few dishes as possible.

If you cook in your family and are worried about the unfair distribution of homework, I’m sure you will find something to keep your partner busy while you wash the dishes. I suggest folding the laundry or perhaps removing the dishes when they are clean. Either way, cleaning up the dishes is the most frustrating part of the job.
