I do wash a lot of my baking dishes by hand but i hate dishes so we use the dishwasher more often than not.

so how often do you do run the dishwasher or wash the dishes?
once. And the are only 5 weeks old!

We are a famly of 6 and I hand wash multiple times a day. I have a dishwasher but only use it if the dishes get to be overwhelming because I dont stay on top of them. We use no paper products as they are a waste IMO.

On the laundry topic I do 3-4 loads every 3-4 days. My older 2 do their own laundry.

Re: How many times a day do you run the dishwasher/wash dishes?

Family of 6 and I run the dishwasher at least once a day. About twice a week I have to do it twice. I hate washing by hand so if it's something that can go in the dishwasher, I'd rather let it sit in the sink until the current dishwasher load is finished and then load it up. I only hand wash our cooking pots and pans. We don't use paper plates, either. When I serve my kids breakfast and lunch, I do it on small plates because I can fit more of them in the dishwasher. The boys eat dinner on small plates, too, and the girls use the big plates.

Re: How many times a day do you run the dishwasher/wash dishes?

I only have 1 child, but I'm a daycare provider so I have about 6 kids here each day for breakfast, lunch and 2 snacks. I put EVERYTHING in the dishwasher. I hate washing by hand lol. Most days I run the dishwasher twice...once after breakfast, snack & lunch and then again after dinner.

Re: How many times a day do you run the dishwasher/wash dishes?

We are a family of 5 full time, family of 8 part time. I only run the dishwasher once per day, and that is at night after dinner dishes are done. We (me and the kids) hand wash all pots and pans, plastics (like sippy cups and my LOs plates, bowls, etc.) I try to always unload the dishwasher in the morning and wash up breakfast dishes. The rest of the day, Im just rinsing and sticking in the dishwasher or quickly hand washing.
