House Rules & Guidelines

Cleaning also gives your food time to cool down. Everybody wins. Dry and put away your clean dishes. Clean ALL your dishes. Every item you’ve used. This includes pans. This includes forks. This includes ANY kitchen surface (microwave, oven, counter, etc.).

If you use it, clean it.
