At our house, everyone is constantly asking Mom (aka me) if the dishwasher is clean or dirty.

Back when we only had a child or two we only had to run the dishwasher every night it was simple to unload the clean ones in the morning and then just load dirty ones throughout the day. Now with 5 boys running around we have to do at least a couple of loads a day. Which means no one ever knows if they are clean or dirty.

I like when my kids load their own dirty dishes (who doesn’t?), but if they are unsure if it’s clean or dirty they just ditch the dishes in the sink and expect Mom to clean up the mess. No more! Since creating my de-clutter calendar I am more dedicated at keeping things clean and orderly. So, that means no more dishes sitting in the sink for Mom to do.

This morning I woke up before the boys to create, cut and apply my new dishwasher vinyl. Woohoo! Now all I have to do is remember to switch the magnet every time I start the dishwasher. I can do that if it means not having to find dirty dishes in my sink anymore.

Just download my ZIP file below. I contains the PDF and SVG files of my dishwasher vinyl.

Note: I cut my Dishwasher Vinyl 1.5″ tall.


Now just stick your dishwasher vinyl on your dishwasher where it will be best seen.

NOTE: My magnet was made with just a left-over, square, glass tile I had from my chore chart magnets and a little scrapbook paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
