Dishwashing Tips

  • SAVE WATER, ENERGY AND TIME

    Washing the dishes properly, in a plastic dish tub, rather than one at a time under the tap, will not only save water and energy but also save time.


  • KEEP GLASSES FROM GETTING CLOUDY

    If glass dishes begin to look cloudy, wash them with vinegar to clear up the glass. 


  • WASHING OFF DAIRY PRODUCTS

    Use cold water to wash off starches and dairy products, because they get gummier in hot water. 


  • REMOVING COFFEE AND TEA STAINS

    Try baking soda on a sponge to gently remove the coffee stains. You can also use a few drops of Test Bleach on very stubborn coffee stains.


  • GET RID OF STUBBORN GREASE RESIDUE

    The sooner you wash pots and pans after using them, the better. Because salt is absorbent and a natural abrasive, it is an excellent antidote to grease. Rub salt into especially dirty pots and pans with a dry sponge until greasy residue is gone. 


  • TACKLE BADLY BURNED POTS

    Fill badly pots without nonstick coating with cold water and 2 or 3 tablespoons salt. Let soak overnight. Slowly bring the water to a boil; the burn marks should disappear. (You may need to repeat a few times.) Then wash as you normally would.
