Instead of constantly reminding your kids to remember to load or unload the dishwasher, KitchenTour’s magnet (which is selling ultrafast on Amazon right now) does all the remembering for you. Just stick the magnet on your washer and swipe to indicate whether the contents inside are dirty or clean. That bright red “dirty” sign is certainly one way to guilt children into pitching in with the dishes!

While the magnet might seem like it’s just for kicks, shoppers say it’s not just helpful, but that it’s making a huge difference in their everyday. And right now, you can get the magnet for 51 percent off at just $6!

With nearly 9,700 reviews on the product, the KitchenTour has a near-perfect 4.6-star rating. Shoppers love how efficient and easy the magnet is to use, and are especially grateful for the impact it has on houses with multiple people.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

Order in the house

Customers love what a difference this little sign can make! 

"What a lifesaver," one five-star reviewer shared. “OK, that’s dramatic. Definitely a timesaver though, as I don’t have to answer to my family asking me 50 times each day whether the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty. Also saves me from having to slap a sticky note on my dishwasher when the dishes are clean but I haven’t had time to unload them. I mean there are other ways to know if the dishes are clean or dirty such as: open the door and look inside, but who has time for that? Not my family. The magnet works great with a strong hold and the slider over 'Dirty/Clean' is simple to use. Exactly what I wanted.”

It's so useful that some recommend gifting it to others:

Another grateful shopper said: "It's such a simple thing, but such a big help. You can use it magnetically or with the adhesive. I just used the magnetic strip on my dishwasher, and it has held on really well. Even with my kids being rough and slamming the door, it has stayed on. The panel slides back and forth very easily to change between dirty and clean. The bright green and red colors make it easy to read even from across the room. Too many times my kids have put dirty dishes into an already clean load. Or taken dirty dishes out to use thinking that they were clean. This has put a stop to that. Even my 4-year-old can tell if it's dirty or clean and then knows if she can put her dirty plate in or take out a clean cup. I wish I would've bought one sooner and I would definitely give it as part of a housewarming gift or something."

Works at work too

Become an office hero, and bring one to your workplace!

Another five-star reviewer wrote: “Needed this for the office after everyone kept saying they weren't sure if the dishes were dirty or clean. This helps, and it looks awesome, very clean and sturdy. The magnet attached right to the dishwasher so didn't need to use the adhesion.”

Never unintentionally eat from a dirty bowl again — pick one of these on-sale KitchenTour magnets up before they sell out!
