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.
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.

Love it!
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.

Stocking Stuffer
These make good stocking stuffers at Christmas.

Terriffic Idea!
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.
February 21, 2019
Never guess if your dishes are clean.
I have been looking for something like this for so long and it doesn't take up much room. I love it.

Good reminder
Nice reminder for you and others

I really needed this product.
It reminds me when the dishwasher has a full load and is ready to run.

LOVE This Little Thing!
This is a really cute way to keep track of what's in the dishwasher. It's a nice design and easy to use. Since I live alone and don't cook big meals often, I sometimes forget if the clean-looking dishes in the dishwasher are dirty ones I've "stored" there of if they're clean ones I haven't removed yet. The only way to make this better would be to make it magnetic rather than stick-on. I had one of these at my previous house and had to leave it behind for the new owners. Getting another one was my first purchase for my new home. A simple, inexpensive little item that makes me happy every time I use it.
January 14, 2018
Love it
This is the second one that I've bought of this. I replaced my dishwasher, but couldn't get the old one off the dishwasher. So I ordered another one.

It's so simple to use - just push it to the left or to the right.

Easy way for everyone to know if dishes clean or dirty. Too many times someone takes dishes of clean dishwasher without emptying it and no one knows if rest are dirty or not!

Since I always rinse my dishes before using dishwasher. I'm not always I'm sure if items have been washed or not. Sounds like that ad on TV. Why have a dishwasher?

We do not run the dishwasher on a daily basis so it is sometimes hard to remember if they need washing or are already cleaned. This will solve the problem
Dianne M on Sep 13, 2018

Cassandra C on Feb 25, 2019
how does it stay on the dishwasher, is it a magnetic sign or sticky tape?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The user peels off the paper on back and sticks it to the surface of the dishwasher. However, I actually hot-glued a small magnet on back so I could remove it if I wanted. My family loves this sign, and I've bought it for friends with kids, too!
Does this dishwasher reminder come in white?
Nancy H on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine is as shown, my dishwasher is white with black accents so it looks very nice on it. I put mine just above the handle and it looks like it came that way. Great product as sometimes I forget if they are clean or dirty,HA!
Is the "clean dirty sliding magnet" for dishwashers available in white?
Ziggie on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. This is the way we sell the item, no color choices. We hope this information will be of help to you.
