Template: Office Chores

To combat a messy office with lifeless plants, we've devised an Office Chores schedule to take care of three main tasks:

  1. Washing Dishes

    1. At the start and end of each day, unload the dishwasher (if clean), load dishwasher (if dishes are in the sink), run dishwasher (if full). Give counters a quick wipe as well. 

    2. If you are the last person to put a dish in the dishwasher. Grab a cascade pod under the sink and start the dishwasher.

      1. Select Normal. Press Start. Close.

      2. If you open the dishwasher while it's running, press START.

    3. If the dishwasher is full and you have a dirty dish, please wash your dish and place it on the drying rack.

  2. Friday Fridge

    1. On Friday afternoon, right before you leave for the weekend, look through fridge and throw away anything without a sticky note or with a sticky note with a date in the past or no date.

  3. Water Plants

    1. Two times during the week, give each plant a bit of water using the two watering cans in the kitchen area. Don't overdo it :)

Each team will be assigned 1 week for all three tasks. Please keep your assigned week on your calendar.The scheduled weeks are kept on this Google spreadsheet:

More Information/FAQ

  1. If you will be OOO for a time during your scheduled duties, please ask your team to cover your duties.

  2. When you place food in the fridge, please add a sticky note with your name and an expiration date. Anything without a note (or with a past expiration date) will be tossed every Friday afternoon.

  3. Please always place your dirty dishes in the dishwasher provided it is not running. If it's running, please wash your dirty dishes.
