Four Ways to Do Dishes Faster


After dinner, all you want to do is chill, but dish duty calls! Speed up this painful chore by washing dishes strategically. These tricks will have you relaxing again in no time: http://bit.ly/1j7bCrA
Embrace the Brush. Sponges are fine for cups and delicate glassware, but a brush with a handle offers much more leverage for things like plates, pots and pans. Plus, most brushes come with a scraper.

Heat It Up. Soaking dishes isn’t just a procrastination tool – it really helps speed up the entire cleaning process! Fill your sink with the hottest water your faucet can manage.

Build a Tower. For the most efficient “soaking session,” use your hot water on a plate-and-silverware tower. When you stack your plates in the sink, place a fork or knife between each level.

Use Eggshells. Burnt rice is annoying for you, but it’s downright devastating for your pots and pans. If you have an extremely dirty or greasy pot or pan, save the day with crushed eggshells!

    And if you have a really large dinner, like family gatherings at Christmas, the dishwasher gets full quickly. The rest has to be done by hand. Decades ago in home economics were taught the method to washing dishes. Glasses and silverware first. Then plates and bowls. They pots and pans. Sharps done separately for obvious reasons. Organization.
