This is the only part I hate of having people over for good Q. I need a bigger dishwasher or a bigger garbage can. It was a fun night. 16# of spareribs, 2 fatties, and alot of beer
. Everyone was happy. I was too until I woke up this morning a walked downstairs to see this.
Gotta love those kind of parties.. next time be thinking "Paper Plates" .. and a maid
A pressure washer should be able to take care most of the dishes. Just need to secure the plates down, or else they go flying off into a wall or something. Going to be investing in one soon.
We have a "fill as you go" policy at our house when filling the dishwasher...and if you don't bring something to the dinner/party you will be charged with keeping the mess under control.

You'd think that people would mind the clean up rule....but they keep coming and cleaning.

Grab them by the taste buds...and their hearts and minds will follow....
Beerivore -

Loks like you all had a good time last night.

I'm with Lisa - paper plates, plastic dinnerware, tinfoil pans, plastic cups and kegs!

PS - in my house I am the dishwasher!
i have a very simple rule here- i cook it, you clean it. car keys are left w/ me @ entry- plenty of sleeping bags ,room, fouton, & air matresses... my guests don't drink & drive, & in the morning if ya want coffee.. my galley is spotless.... yeah, i am directly related to capt. hardazz
LOL...boy does that look familar
Gotta say though, after a few times of walking into that at the end of the night or the next morning, I too came up with a " I cook clean it policy"
Whew! Been there, done that! We are very into disposables for big gatherings, and weather permitting, keeping it outside! Looks like you had a good time though!
Paper and plastic, the only way to go. And then on their way out you hit them with, "hey drop this in the trash can on your way out" is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
