Dish Scores

Sometimes when you're washing dishes, you calculate your progress based on how many items you've washed. This "progress" is totally false. I've created this table that provides a 'score' for each kind of item washed. After you're done cleaning, you can total you score to find out how much dish-progress you actually made. You should print out this table and place it somewhere in your kitchen. If you have roommates, they will no longer be able to claim that they are helping out by washing 10 butter knives (that's like washing just one wire whisk!). If you own a dishwasher, you can try to maximize its efficiency.
