Fullness to Indicate Cleanliness

Our house has a simple system for the dishwasher: when you're emptying a rack, empty it all the waya and push it in. This means that if you come across a dishwasher with a partially-full rack you know it's dirty and can put things in without checking. It's a lot more reliable than clean/dirty toggle magnets, because it can't be "out of sync".

Clean:

Dirty:

This system works especially well for us because of how many people we have in the house. It's not like someone living alone who will remember whether they already unloaded the dishwasher, and we're almost never running partial loads.
