Dishwasher alert helpful & easy to use
I had one of these that lasted for years. I really missed it when I got a new dish washer. I am so happy to have one again. I really appreciate knowing without looking to see whether my dishes are dirty or clean. There are only two of us in the house, so sometimes it is days before I am ready to wash dishes.

Great product!
I bought a Dishwasher Alert years ago, pried it off when I moved, and stuck it on the new dishwasher. When I moved again, some years later, I left the old sign behind and bought a new one. I don't know why it isn't in my latest Miles Kimball catalog. I'm so glad I found it online at

Dishwasher Alert is perfect for when the dishwasher has already been opened, but not emptied. I might go into the dishwasher to get a clean glass, for example, and that little "Clean" light goes off on the dishwasher's display. This low-tech sign serves as a reminder, "Don't put dirty dishes in here."

I don't run the dishwasher every day, so I rinse the dishes before loading them into the dishwasher to keep it from smelling bad. Unless it's almost empty, (indicating that it was recently unloaded), looking inside doesn't tell me if the dishes are clean or dirty. Thank you, Dishwasher Alert.

Now we don't have to stick a note on the dishwasher every time we have clean dishes in it! It works great--adhesive sticks well and so far the kids haven't messed with it because it looks natural on it.

Discription should tell how it attaches.
I was tired of finding dirty dishes in with the clean dishes I left running the night before and the first person up stuck their dirty breakfast dishes right in with the clean ones.

Stick it on the front of your dishwasher. That's all...easy to use. Prevents opening the door every time to check to see if the dishes are clean or dirty.

Delighted to find another one of these after moving! It's SO convenient--almost can't live without it, especially if you're at all absent-minded.

Great sign
Fit right on the dishwasher. Easy to see and to read. Now I just have to teach my husband to check the sign before asking the question.
43 years and still a work in progress.

I love this product. It is small and fits right on the dishwasher opening. Easy to slide from clean to dirty and back again. Let's everyone know what the status is on the dishes in the dishwasher. No more accidentally putting a dirty dish in the clean ones that I have not had a chance to put away yet. Great!!!!

Makes for a happier wife therefore happy household! One of the best purchases ever, just wishes it wasn't as expensive for such a small, simple plastic piece. Yet even still, I have recommended it.
