I suppose my other two option would be to move the "dish wash station" outside but then I would need to haul hot water and quite frankly it is getting a little nippy outside. Or set something up in the creepy dungeon/cellar/ basement but there are spiders, an occasional mouse or two and usually a snake down there...so that would be a big fat NO! Icky bathroom it is, bleh
The water stays nice and toasty for quite a while since the cooler holds heat being insulated and all. Which is good because I am only washing dishes once a day. I usually soak the dishes for about an 30-40 minutes while I take the dogs out, take the garbage out and usually work on some laundry at the same time. I am really trying to limit the amount of dishes we are using (it is primarily pots/ pans since we are using paper/ disposable plastic for the dishes and cutlery) because I don't like hand washing dishes anyway, especially hunched over the bath tub...
I am REALLY regretting not remodelling the bathroom/ laundry room area first. I had planned on installing a utility sink and small laundry folding counter. Which in hindsight would have been perfect for a dish wash station. And a cheaper remodel project. oops. Oh well, live and learn. I will know better if we ever do this type of thing again. Which is most likely never!
Anyone have any good tips for managing the chores while living through a kitchen remodel?
