    I've got a dishwasher so sometimes leave them in there but don't put it on. Otherwise doesn't bother me if they are in sink for a night/day. Not important enough to lose sleep over

    Yep every night, otherwise we will wake to ants or roaches! I usually do then while DH baths DD, there isn't many as I wash as I go throughout the day.

    90% of the time I do them at night but being a single mum sometimes I would prefer to have extra time with the kids or something else might come up to do or I am way too tired. I scrape them though and stack for the morning. I do them as soon as I get up So yep, I feel guilty too!

    My dishes are done at least twice a day. Sometimes I will leave them overnight and do them first thing in the morning but then I also do the days dishes in the afternoon.

    I do mine of a morning, sometimes they sit on the bench till the next afternoon if I don't have time in the mornings. The only time I do them at night is if I have to start work early the next day and don't want mum/MIL to do them.

    Yup...well DH does

    Our rule is the cook doesnt clean. So because I cook every night, DH does the dishes. I couldnt leave them to the next day, it stresses me out having a messy kitchen.

    Yeah I do the dishes every night. I think it's the only thing I actually stay on top of.
    I hate to leave them there to fester overnight, attracting cockroaches.

    The dishwasher does mine after dinner. Very occasionally I am too tired to stack it so I leave it for the next morning but I haaate it! I hate waking up to a dirty kitchen, even if it's just the sink. So I try not to do it often.

    Nope. I rinse and stack on the sink then put them in the dishwasher when there is enough for a load (I don't like putting them in before then as the dishwasher stinks if I do). Dp cleans the kitchen every night he is home, and expects me to do the same, it's infuriating.

    A few years ago, we used to occasionally leave them til the next day.

    Nowadays, I can't imagine doing that! I like the kitchen to be completely clean before we go to bed.

    I think it's easiest to try and tackle the after dinner clean-up sooner rather than later in the evening. The later it gets the more I want to wind down and relax, not have the task of dishes hanging over my head!

    I'm so thankful that we have a dishwasher now, it's made a massive difference.
