There’s some debate over how this day works, but most websites indicate that it’s a day to not wash any dishes, but that you really shouldn’t make a nasty pile for the next day either. Since eating out for every meal and using disposable dishes are both frowned on, I have only one real suggestion for this day: celebrate another May 18th holiday – Visit Your Relatives Day – and let them do the dishes!
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.”
May 18 is also International Museum Day!
