- Dear Teachers,

1. I'm doing the washing-up.

2. I'm washing the dishes.

3. I'm doing the dishes.

- Are these the same meaning?

Thanks very much to Teachers,

Stevenukd.

I think #1 is moreBritish; #2 and #3 are more common in the U.S.

Hi,

You could also say 'I'm washing up'.

However, I think that, in USA English, this can mean 'I'm washing my hands and face.'
