It happens every night. And every morning. And really, every time you eat. A dish become befouled by the food you place on it, and it goes to the kitchen where it awaits cleansing. In some parts of the world, this is done by a benevolent device that features whirling columns of gentle sudsy water. However, all too often these machines are not installed in our apartments, (or the results of our pillaging surpass the capacity of these devices,) and we are forced to wash them ourselves.

But how to do it? There are so many, and the pile grows larger by the meal. Every snack becomes an exercise of spacial-relations, as the towering stacks of soiled things begin to take over every flat space in the kitchen. TO WHAT END?

Here, in this haphazardly bound paperback, is the answer.

How To Do The Dishes attacks this kitchen crisis head on, with beautiful full-page illustrations. Directed specifically for those of us poor saps without dish washing machines, How To Do The Dishes concisely gives one specific instructions for how this grave task should be dealt with.


As this is my very first ever zine, my xeroxing skills are not top notch. This particular batch I was a bit sheepish to sell in the actual store, as they were a bit too messy for the rigors of shelf-life.

SO! I am offering these for the SIGNIFICANT DISCOUNT of $2. That's it guys. Two dollars. Less than a cup of coffee. Less than a load of laundry at the coin-op machines downstairs. I am also throwing in some hand-drawn doodles and other surprises as my way of saying "thank you for making future xeroxing projects possible".

Praise for How To Do The Dishes:

"Aw, I love it! I think people will...this give them a little bit of [sighs happily] in their day, you know?"
