    clean/ wash

    Deal all,

    Do you say, "clean the dishes" to mean "wash the dishes"?

    Thank you!

    Re: clean/ wash

    I've heard speakers use "clean the dishes" to mean "wash the dishes", but I haven't used it, yet.

    Not a teacher

    "Do the dishes" is used as well.

    I've never heard anybody say 'clean the dishes' when they mean 'wash the dishes' or 'do the washing up' or simply 'wash up'.
