Top best answers to the question «Do astronauts have to wash dishes or laundry»

Some previous space stations were equipped with showers, but these are not fitted in the Shuttle or the ISS. Instead, astronauts use a damp, soapy cloth for washing. There is no washing of dirty dishes either… Urine produced when astronauts use the toilet is also purified and recycled.

No; there is not enough water on the space station for this, and free water is hazardous in zero gravity anyway.
