I was previously a dishwasher by profession so 10 minutes worth of home dishes that I got to eat with beats 12 hours of dishes from other people any day. But I know some people hate it. Like ring said, you gotta add consequences. Maybe when you order out take a screen shot of your receipt total and look at how much money you're wasting on takeout every month instead of A few dollars for a good sponge and some soap. I'm guessing you don't have a dishwasher... I've also seen it where people are too lazy to load and unload a dishwasher which is insane to me. At that point probably best to reward yourself until it just becomes something you want to do, like a Pavlovian dog. I used to hate doing laundry but then it came to be beer time. Load the machine? Have a beer. Unload and fold the clothes? Another beer. Now I can do it without the beer.
