This is worrying me - there's things that I do on this list! I always wipe my bench with the tea towel after I've wiped it over with the sponge (and then the tea towel goes in the wash), and I hate hate hate it when my ILs leave dirty cutlery next to my sink. Don't leave it on my nice new benchtop! Put them in the sink!
The tea bags left on the sink drive me batty too - just put them in the bin!
