  • A phrase used by my relatives and others of our circle of friends from western Pennsylvania in the 1950s to mean "clear the dinner table of dishes following dinner." I think it came from the word "rid" meaning rid the table of dishes. However they also used the term "red up" as in, "I'll be with you in a minute as soon as I red up the kitchen a bit," which meant to "restore order to the kitchen".
