TODAY IS NO DIRTY DISHES DAY
If there’s anything that ruins a delicious and enjoyable meal it’s having to do dishes afterward. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a day that you didn’t have to do any dishes? Thankfully that’s the purpose of No Dirty Dishes Day!
You can head out to eat at a local restaurant rather than cooking at home or just decide to use disposable dishes and silverware. Either way, the goal is to not do any dishes on No Dirty Dishes Day!
