how to effectively wash the dishes

Not every household has a dishwasher; so most likely, one will stick to the traditional way of washing the dishes. But here’s the thing: not everyone can wash the dishes effectively. Some use too much water, some put on too much dishwashing soap, and some just really do not get the dishes clean at all. At times, it will still have left over soap or still be oily—as if it hasn’t been washed in the first place. To learn an effective way of washing the dishes—and by effective, I mean getting the dishes really washed and clean while conserving dishwashing soap and water at the same time. Step 1: Get Rid of all the Leftovers Remove all the left over sauce, bones, pieces of meat—anything that isn’t the surface of a dish, utensil or cup. Get rid of all the grease too, to make it easier for you to soap up all the dishes later on. Use water if necessary. Step 2: Fill the sink with “enough” water, then put the lock the pop-up By “enough” water, I meant just enough to sink one plate in it. By locking the pop-up, you then hold this amount of water. Step 3: Use a few drops of dishwashing liquid Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need that much soap to clean that many dishes. These dishwashing soaps and/or liquids are highly concentrated mixtures; so much so that even a few drops—when mixed with water can be enough to clean a pile of dirty dishes. Mix this reasonable amount of soap to the water on the sink. Mix it up till its bubbly enough. For a more effective result, it’s best to mix your dishwashing soap with equal parts water. Now that you’ve mixed the soap with water, you’ve got enough for a whole batch of dishes. It helps save up in buying more dishwashing soap, as it cuts down your usage from nearly a quarter of the sachet to just a couple of drops. Step 4: Small-Large, Top-bottom, Inside-out Use this method when soaping everything. Make sure to wash the smallest dishes first, or the ones that had the least oil. Follow this sequence: utensils, cups and mugs, small plates, bigger plates and bowls, and pans. Then do the top-bottom, inside-out method in soaping. This way, you won’t miss any spots that need cleaning. Step 5: Empty the Sink, Fill it with “enough” water again After emptying the sink and making sure there isn’t any traces of soap, fill the sink again with just enough water to now rinse your soaped pile. Follow the sequence stated above when rinsing as well. Rinse twice if necessary. And since you’re not rinsing the dishes with running water, this effectively helps in lowering your water bill.
