I used to be a load it/unload it once a day kinda gal. I would typically empty it close to supper time and re-load then simply because I didn't have enough room to do any food prep. Some days the dishes would be clean in the morning and I would actually empty it then but not load it until later so the dirties sat out all day. I finally had a revelation!
Empty it WHENEVER it's clean. Whenever! If that means I empty it 4 times a day then so be it. If it's empty then that means I can put the dirties in and the kitchen stays cleaner. If it's empty then that means the kids can put their dirties in after a meal. (Don't laugh so hard! I hear you!) If it's empty then that means that I will have the clean dishes I need to cook in/with and serve on.
Some days I run it twice because we are a big family and that what it takes. I don't have a schedule for it like always run it after dinner. It just does its job when it needs to be done.
Ahhh...a clean kitchen!
