We have good help cleaning up after most group meals. Cooks are the ultimately-responsible ones, but typically about 6 helpers are major players. Factors: = a simple and predictable routine for getting dishes washed and put away; leftovers bundled up for take home = well laid-out areas: besides dishwasher, a pot sink, and another sink for handwashing knives, wine glasses and such; rolling dish cart with bin of clean white dish towels on the lower shelf =big clanking steamy dish washer, restaurant type, that appeals to the guys

= liberal use of "volunteering" folks who are just sitting around. "Here's a rag - would you wipe these tables?" "Would you please gather up more dishes to wash?" "I need someone to empty the compost bucket" -- or better yet, "Mary, could you....?" And of course lots of thank yous and acknowledgement.
