  1. Of course, starting to wash the dishes prior to the conclusion of the meal is very poor etiquette and shows disrespect to your guests. Wait until they leave or as stated in another answer, if the party is informal and tidying up is fairly quick. One tip for any after dinner clean up: Do It! Always make sure the dishes and glasses, linens and cutlery are all cleaned up before you go to bed. I was always taught never to go to bed until the house looks as though there hadn’t been a party at all.
