So here we are again

I clean and cook like crazy for 3 days before my aunt visits, and when she leaves 48 hours later every possible utensil is dirty and there is food everywhere.

There is also the usual logistical problem that in preparing the aforesaid food and cleaning the aforesaid house I used every single tea towel and cleaning cloth I possess. Since the process only ever ends shortly before her arrival, these were therefore in the washing machine on her arrival. They now need to be rinsed, but this cannot occur because if the washing machine spins it throws everything waiting to be washed up off the draining board. However, I cannot wash the items on the draining board because the tea towels which I need have to be rinsed by the washing machine first.
