Low Down on Dirty Dishes.
The dish washer is full, you are in a hurry so tonight's dishes can just wait. Or can they?
Here are a few good habits to develop for yourself and pass along to your kids. 1)Never set a used cup, dish, plate etc in the kitchen sink. Even though the dish washer is full, rinse off the dish before you leave it in the sink.
2)If you don't have a dish washer then here is a handy trick to clean dishes, glasses and silverware. It's great for RVers and boaters as well. Fill one new spray bottle half full with water add a couple drops of liquid dish, shake gently and finish filling with water. Mark the bottle 'wash.'
Pour 1/4 cup food grade distilled white vinegar into a second bottle and fill with water. Mark it 'rinse.' Spray the plate or whatever with the 'wash' water, scrub with your dish brush then spray with the vinegar and water solution. Leave in the dish drainer to dry.
Never leave dishes in the sink where bacteria grows on the food. It takes but a few minutes to clean them and let them air dry in the dish drainer.
