On days when the family is home, keep a dish pan of soapy water in the sink. As family members use plates and glasses throughout the day, give them a quick wash in the soapy water and rinse under the faucet. Better yet, have family members wash what they use themselves!
Good tip. Even if the dishes are just put into the hot soapy water, they soak clean, and just need a quick rinse off, and into the dryer rack. I try to do this at work in the lunchroom when it is my week to be on "kitchen" cleanup.

I hate the smell of cold dirty dishwater. I like to give them a quick rinse off, then using a long-handled dish brush having been dipped into cooking pan of water that needed soaking anyway, & heated till hot, give the dishes a quick bush over, then rinse.
