To avoid polluting your sink of water, begin by scraping the dishes of excess food. Stack the dishes in preparation for washing. Tough stuck on foods may need to be soaked first before washing.
Make sure you use the correct temperature. Add dish soap and the water will be ready to begin dish washing.
This usually includes glasses, cups, and flatware. Washing these items first keeps your water fresher and ready to tackle bigger jobs.
Remember to scrape these items before washing. Wash gently. Keep an eye out for when you should change the dish washing water.
Any tough food should have been soaking already., making this dish washing go more smoothly. Wash the pans thoroughly, and you’re done washing. Don’t forget to clean the bottoms of pans. Any oily residue left will burn onto the bottom of the pan at the next cooking session.
If you have a double sink, dish washing is a snap. Use the second sink to rinse off the dish washing suds from the dishes. If you don’t have a double sink, you can use a dish pan filled with hot water to rinse/dip your dishes clean.
If you’ve used the right water temperature, the dishes will dry quickly on their own. In some instances, you may have to use a dish towel. Make sure the towel is clean. Change the towel when it become damp.
Put all of the dishes away. Leaving them sitting out will expose your dishes to bacteria and germs that were just scrubbed off of them.
Wipe down and dry sink, dish drainer, and dishpan. Wipe off counter, island and range. Any rags, dish cloths, or sponges need to be left out to air dry, or thrown into the washing machine. Remember to replace sponges and rags frequently. Put away your supplies and you’re done.
