Are the dishes dirty? Or clean?
How will we ever know?
Do you have family members that ask you if the dishwasher is clean or dirty rather than looking? Is your dishwasher kinda crappy so that even if you look you’re really not sure unless some big messy meal is still plastered to a plate? You need a Dirty/Clean Dishwasher magnet!
Load the dishwasher. Get it running. Let’s get crafting while the current load of dishes is washing and then slap it on so people know they should empty it for you. All you need is:
- A magnet sheet
- Something to decorate the magnet
- Lettering – stickers, stamp, pretty handwriting
I used an old year magnet from 2013, a piece of scrapbook paper, washi tape for the edges and some letter stickers I found in the $1 bins at Target.
You should be warned… there may be a lot of magnet crafts coming… I had a slight problem resisting all the deals Vistaprints kept sending me in late 2012. I still have about a dozen of these cute 2013 magnets I made. Like the saying? That’s a Sarah Saying.

Start by cutting a piece of paper (or whatever you’re using as a cover) to the size of the magnet. I made mine a little larger and trimmed it. Adhere your covering to the magnet. I used a few pieces of double sided tape. I didn’t need too much because I sealed the edges with washi tape. Yeah… washi tape is going to be around a bit to. My new love.
Add your letters: stickers, stamps, hand write it. Just remember to have the lettering facing the correct direction.
Now the whole house knows the dishes are clean! The real challenge is to remember to flip it ;)
How do you know if the dishes are clean or dirty? Who empties the dishwasher?
