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.

Dishwasher Reminder Invaluable Purchase
Can't tell you how many times washed dishes left in the dishwasher have been joined by additional dirty dishes waiting to be washed. That won't happen again with the Dishwasher Reminder. A soon as you unload the dishwasher, slip the reminder to dirty dishes. And just before you run the dishwasher, move the reminder to CLEAN, where it stays until you put the clean dishes away.

Makes a Great reminder
I first purchased this item to use for myself and after being asked by several friends where I got them I decided they would make a great stocking stuffer at Christmas. Our kids love them and now their kids are wanting them for their homes. Just bought 4 more for gifting (stocking stuffers).

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.

Maybe someone else will empty the dishwasher.
Elaine B on Oct 23, 2019

Sherry on Oct 22, 2019
Now my hubby won't ask me if the dishes are clean or dirty!! :)
Teri M on Oct 17, 2019
Can you believe someone was able to invent this??? I was tired of always forgetting to load or unload the dishwasher, what an ingenious idea! Miles Kimble has the best creative products...
TEZANNE B on Oct 17, 2019
Because I’ve starting put things away & realize I haven’t washed the dishes yet
Shelley S on Oct 13, 2019

It’s a must have in a household with more than one person!
Margaret C on Sep 2, 2019
Ordered one for myself and it is the best I have purchased - our son saw it and wanted one and I decided to order extras as “just because” gifts for friends!
Claudia H on Sep 2, 2019
Finally found one that is not a magnet because my new dishwasher does not hold magnets
Karen S on Sep 1, 2019

More than one person loads/unloads dishwasher - hoping to help eliminate unnecessary duplicate washings.
Alice Z on Aug 7, 2019
New dishwasher doesn't have a notification light as our old one did. So going to try this.
Karen D on Aug 2, 2019
This helps my husband take out clean dishes and not dirty ones.
Ida T on Jul 26, 2019
It would be so handy because you never know if the dished have been washed already or still waiting to be washed.
Sandra W on Jul 26, 2019
Very smart!! Keeps everyone informed status of dishwasher. No excuses from family!!
DONNA S on Jul 10, 2019

MARIA C on Jun 30, 2019
So my husband can stop asking are these dishes clean or dirty
Janice P on Jun 27, 2019
I've been needing one of these but, I haven't been able to find one in the stores. Now I don't have to repeatedly say if the dishes are clean or dirty
Robin W on Jun 22, 2019
I have one in my home and I love it. I am purchasing a second for a summer camp house. I never am in doubt as to whether the dishes are clean or dirty. It is very easy and you can place it wherever you want it.
Cynthia W on Jun 7, 2019
Easier for children to keep track
Pamela H on May 14, 2019
I've been looking for something like this for a while since the dishwasher doesn't get run every day & with 3 people using it, it was never easy to figure out if the almost full washer was clean or dirty.
Amy B on May 11, 2019
My husband and boys are always asking if the dishes are clean. Now they want have to ask if they are clean or not. I had a clean/dirty sign Years ago that was lost in our move, I haven't seen one since then. I am thrilled to have found this one!
Gloria M on May 6, 2019
I needed one. Good idea.
Linda S on Apr 30, 2019

Tina P on Jan 3, 2019
easy to change from clean to dirty. right now we have 2 magnets we have to interchange.
Karen E on Dec 31, 2018
We have a new dishwasher and the panel is not lit and is hard to read the words under the lights, hopefully this will help and I will get a hand in the kitchen!
Donna M on Dec 31, 2018

I have had one for years and love it. I give one to anybody I know that doesn’t have one. My son needs one for his dishwasher
J B on Dec 29, 2018
Hoping husband will read it!
Margaret C on Dec 27, 2018
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!
J M on Dec 19, 2018
Been looking for one of these for my daughter finally found one.
Kyle B on Dec 18, 2018

Teri C on Dec 3, 2018
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?
MaryJo F on Nov 27, 2018
Kind of obvious. Wanted something a little more cutesy but have not found anything yet.

Jennifer P on Nov 4, 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.
