Dish time? Save time, water and soap


By Bob Difley

Here’s a method for washing dishes if you’re trying to save water, soap, hot water usage and time.

•  Fill a small bowl with hot water and a few drops of grease-cutting dishwashing soap, such as Dawn.

•  Wash dishes with a sponge with a scouring surface on one side for tough, dried-on food.

•  Let soapy — but clean — dishes and utensils accumulate in sink.

•  When finished, load dishes into a sink drainer placed on the bottom of the sink.

•  Use a spray bottle to spray clean water on dishes to wash off soapy water.

•  Let stand in sink to dry.

With this method you will use the least amount of soap and water and your dishes will be clean.
