I haven’t been around much. I’ve been a little busy. Moving is done … ish. I still have a couple of boxes to empty and some stuff to arrange. But for the most part I am settled in.
The grand kids are here all weekend and some weeknights. I love having them, but there is only one problem.
I can’t afford a dishwasher right yet.
I grew up in a house with five kids during the 70′s and we always had a dishwasher. I never learned how to properly wash dishes.
I don’t like dishes to sit so I end up doing them multiple times a day, but in all honesty, I’m not very good at it. I have noticed bits left on some of the dishes and the pans still feel a little greasy afterwards.
Help me! What shouldn’t I be doing? I am using water as hot as the building allows, Palmolive detergent (dye and perfume free and hypoallergenic) and I rinse them in warm water. I always wash the pans last and let everything air dry.
So tell me – give me your tips and tricks.
