Tips for Hand Washing Dishes

When washing dishes by hand, don't keep the hot water running. Rather, partially fill up the sink with warm, sudsy water. Wash multiple items before running the warm water again to rinse them off. Allow to air dry in the drain. You'll save gallons of water.

Tips for Hand Washing Dishes

Since I don't have a dishwasher, what I do is fill my dishpan with HOT water, antibacterial dish detergent and a sprinkle of baking soda. I wear the yellow dish washing gloves so the hot water doesn't burn me. I wash as many dishes as I can, and place them next to the dish pan, then rinse them all at once and let air dry. My dishes are just as sanitized as if I had used a dish washer and I am saving water too. (05/07/2006)

Thank you for the posting and the feedback. I remember doing this when it was one of my 'chores' as a youngster. (05/09/2006)
