DishShamer solves the age-old problem of getting your roommates to wash their dishes. The kitchen is a communal space. When one individual fails to keep this shared environment clean, there can be two outcomes: conflict and socially awkward confrontations, or placing unfair cleaning burdens on the responsible roommates. By tracking who checks out and returns dishes, maintaining a leaderboard, and sending periodic email updates, DishShamer holds sloppy roommates accountable for their actions.
