Dishwashing Tips: How to Clean Dishes Effectively and Efficiently

  1. Scrape off any excess food from your dishes before washing them. This will help prevent clogs in your sink or dishwasher.

  2. Fill the sink with hot water and add a small amount of dish soap. Too much soap can create suds and make it harder to rinse off.

  3. Start with the cleanest dishes first, such as glasses and silverware, and work your way up to the dirtier dishes like pots and pans.

  4. Use a scrub brush or sponge to clean dishes thoroughly, making sure to get into any crevices or hard-to-reach spots.

  5. Rinse dishes well with hot water to remove any soap residue.

  6. If you're using a dishwasher, make sure to load the dishes properly and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

  7. Consider using a dish rack or towel to air dry dishes instead of using a dish towel, which can harbor bacteria.

  8. Finally, make sure to clean your dishwashing tools, like sponges and brushes, regularly to prevent the buildup of bacteria.
