Yes why doesn't everyone just wash their own dishes? This seems like the most fair arrangement. I wash my dishes as soon as I finish eating off of them. My brother is a total slob though so my mom washes his as well as hers. But if you can get everyone to follow it, I think the washing your own dishes thing is a good idea.

Does the not wanting to wash an omnivore's dishes extend to the dishes they have used for eating veg*n food? Or is it only when their dishes have had meat on them?



What about the vegans here.... who wants to wash vegetarian dishes that have had cheese and/or egg? Ewwwwwwww! Vegetarians should wash their own damn dishes.

I dont like washing their dishes when theres meat, milk, cheese, etc. on them. Most of the time people havent eaten all of the food, so theres parts of meat still on the plate that I need to scrape off.



Everyone in my house is a lazy slob. There is no chance of everyone just doing their own dishes.

I have to wash dishes for my grandmother sometimes, and she eats meat on occasion. I use gloves though. Unfortunately I can't say "wash your own dishes" as she's polio stricken and can't do it herself.

I was wondering about cleaning the toilet after an omni has used it.



As for the gloves, a lot of non vegans wackos where gloves to wash dishes.

I found a mug stuck way in the back of my fridge with meat drippings in it. It must have been there for years (yeah, I clean out my fridge now and then! but this was way way in the back. )



Anyhow, I scraped the crap out of it into the trash (it smelt foul!) rinsed it out with lots of scalding hot water, and put it in the dishwasher. When I took it out, I gave it a sniff. It still smells of dead things. I am going to run it through one more time, and if that doesn't clear the smell I'm throwing it away.



Not only do I not want to wash meaty dishes I'm not sure I even want to keep ones that have been meat-ified

We sometimes have to do what it takes to make a family work as a unit. Everyone had great advice about the gloves and also about your family throwing away their remnants before placing a dish in the sink.

I'm the wife and Mom of meateaters therefore I have to cook for them as well as do the dishes--actually, I don't have to, I choose to.

We take care of each other and are tolerant and respectful of each of our choices.

I'm sure you'll find a peaceful solution--good luck

Could you just get your own gloves? If you get a pair of the really heavy yellow ones they should last a long time.

Even living in my very own house, I occasionally wash a dish that has a built-up meat residue on it. It's a lot like cleaning the toilet, scooping up the dog mess, or moving the old bags of lawn clipping out by the curb. The job's disgusting, but it has to be done. The good news is that when you move out on your own one day and get a place that is truly all your own, you don't need to have one morsel of non-vegan food in your home if you don't desire it. (I tend to let people do as they wish in my house as long as they're not destroying the house or hurting each other. Most people are a bit stricter than I am.) One day you will be out on your own. Just remember that. Then you won't have to clean your toilet, but boy it'll get di-gusting.

PS. Thanks for helping your mother out around the house. We adults need all the help we can get. (Seriously!)

We do have a dishwasher, but I cant just put every dish in it the way it is. I have to rinse and scrub all of the crusted crap out of the dishes first, and I really, really dont want to have to touch and deal with that sort of thing. I know that even if I ask no one in my family will bother rinsing out their own dishes.

This is basically just a rant, but if anyone has any suggestions or anything Id really appreciate it.

Rabid! Water waste -- not good for the environment.

(I appreciate the open-mindedness, by the way - very refreshing!!)
