I guess I did a really poor job of conveying the correct impression. While I admitted in my original post that I am sloppy, I did say the laundry was the issue.

I do clean as I go but, for obvious reasons, that does not include the shirt I'm wearing.

As I'm cooking dinner, I wipe counters, rinse, and put into the DW any piece of kitchenware that is done for the day or rinse and set aside stuff for hand washing later.

When I'm finished cooking, the only things that still need attention are the stovetop, the pots and pans that have food in them and the utensils used to move the food to serving dishes or dinner plates. That's not the problem. I can and do clean all that stuff.

I also mentioned that I don't remember to wear an apron. But thanks for the suggestion to wear an apron.

I don't appreciate being categorized as sloppy simply because I'm a man.

I'm all set on the laundry front. Alix's suggestion worked well.

Thanks again to Alix and all who offered their helpful hints.

That is nice to know, though your original post contradicted that, may I respectfully say.

Jolly good, then.

Tough. It is a known fact in my family that most guys are sloppy in the kitchen and get right royally ragged by us girls, though I am sure you're well on the way to owning an apron emblazoned with "Licenced to Grill."

A sad situation for your family but not applicable worldwide.

While I did mention I am a slob and a messy cook, I also stated that I am totally responsible for cleaning the kitchen and all the cookware in it regardless of who made the mess.
