National No Dirty Dishes Day

National No Dirty Dishes Day - May 18

Stop accumulating plates in the sink after a meal, because the popular National No Dirty Dishes Day on May 18 is on its way. The cleanliness frees up space that is the key to good changes. Dirty dishes cluttering up the kitchen affect your mood and your surroundings negatively.

The History

The porcelain tableware has special value. The material was invented by the Chinese in 600 AD. At the beginning of the XVIII century, porcelain appeared in Europe, thanks to efforts of a German pottery master who learned Eastern technology. He began to apply it in his native country. In the second half of the XIX century, disposable paper tableware appeared. Everyday life became easier when dishwashing detergents went on sale in the 1930s. Housewives consider this useful achievement hugely important and difficult to overestimate.

How to take part

On this holiday, choose a food that does not require being served in dishes that later need to be washed and cleaned, such as pizza, hot dogs, mozzarella, burritos, boiled eggs, fried chicken, tacos, and burgers. In other words, fast food!

  1. Give up cooking at home. Just go to a bar or a restaurant.
  2. Use disposable plates, forks, or spoons.
  3. Wash your dishes. It is the best way to celebrate this wonderful holiday of cleanliness and neatness. It will instantly raise the mood in the house.

The Chinese philosophy says that dirty dishes are a sign of internal contradictions, hidden aggression, and irritability. Get rid of negative emotions with the help of useful, practical exercises. It helps, and it works! Empty the sink and, thus, invite in pure thoughts.
