Tips on Dishes

Hello,

With any community, dishes are often times a sticking point. We’ve come up with some fun psychological aids to help “encourage” folks to take care of their own dishes while at the same time not badgering everyone.

Tips:

B) Everyone loves kittens and puppies

A) A fake camera goes a long way

C) Be nice!!!

The attached picture is what we currently have up over our sink bringing together all three of these elements. Another tip is to change out your signs regularly so they don’t blend into the background as much. We have used Mr T, Sarah Palin and my favorite Dish Karma to help get the message across.

What tricks have you guys used? What’s worked well, and what hasn’t worked out?

Fun! Might as well not get all hot under the collar. I’ll try this at home with my teens.

One of our members likes to take pictures of the dirty dishes and post them to our Basecamp. It’s lighthearted and usually gets laughs, and a few weeks of a clean sink.

“It sits up in a stand that collects its own drips (I wish my baby did this).”

Ah, Angel. Your penchant for wit never fails to delight.

This is truly great, thanks for sharing! Added to my queue to include in the new Best Practices section on the Coworking Blog.

Inspired in part by Angel’s blog post about the “dirty dish” solution that worked for Cohere, here’s an abridged, embarrassing history of our coworking space’s struggle with “the dirty dish” problem and some of the attempts we have (and haven’t) made to solve it:

I’m pretty crazy about the most recent solution, although maybe I should wait until the results are in.
