i would just like to offer that doing dishes IS FUN and RELAXING. the water is WARM ON YOUR HANDS!!! things go from dirty to clean!!!! it’s a fun AND fulfilling activity!!!!!
YES!! Doing a big stack of dishes slowly, luxuriously, in a sink full of water with a nice sponge and in the correct order is a TREAT
Seconding this! And I might add: you get to see the water flowing and forget any grievance for a while, put on the music you like if you’re into it (and even choose a song that is over 10 mins and see if you can finish your dishes before the song ends, if the pile is particularly long!)
Ok. Dishes are indeed fantastic. BUT HAVE YOU HEARD… of sweeping?! My mom bought me a fifty dollar wood and straw broom as a housewarming gift and I love that thing with a frankly worrying intensity. It makes me feel like I’m in a studio Ghibli movie.
Can you all please teach me your ways? I’m in awe.
I am so thrilled to learn I’m not the only one! Like, I do have to be in the right mood, but turning on a podcast, putting on some gloves and doing some scrubbing with the instant gratification of a cleaned dish can be so soothing
If you listen to a podcast while doing dishes, boom, a hobby!
ok that’s a smart idea!
Yeah! When a new episode of my favourite DnD podcast is out and I’m doing the dishes and afterwards everything is shiny and I can have a nice cup of coffee, that’s just nice. I finally feel seen :’D
Doing dishes while baked can be fun if the right song or album is playing.
Yes to this
That used to be my Saturday routine!
