I was taught, that doing the dishes meant, cleaning the dishes, cleaning the sink, the counters around them, drying them, amd putting them away. My brother and I would split the work becahse there were 2 of us. If i washed, he rinsed, both dried etc.

Well considering I have anxiety and depressive tendencies, it’s a fight to just get the dishes done. So sometimes I wipe the counters off, sometimes I don’t, and that’s ok :grin:

I wipe down everything after the dishes have been washed.

Don’t forget to clean the sink to.

If its dirty clean it no point making dishes all clean when benches/kitchen still dirty looking :woman_shrugging::crazy_face:

I’m gonna say nope. Because “doing the dishes” usually is just putting the soap in the cup and Turing the dishwasher on.

Of course you wipe down the counters. I wipe mine down several times a day.
