WFMW - Quick Cleaning For Dishes
Just in time for the Dishes Marathon, aka Thanksgiving!
One year my mother-in-awe gave me a really useful gift. I think it cost her all of 50 cents, but it has made my dish cleaning so much easier.
First you buy one of these. Just a small one will do. I've seen them at WallyWorld and Tarzhay for half a buck.
Then you fill it until it looks to have about an inch of dishwashing soap in the bottom. Slowly fill the remainder of the container with water - close to the top. Put the sprayer, swirl to mix and...
Presto! Instant dishwashing soap without the need to fill a sink to clean.
I use this so often that if I were to go without it now, I'm not sure I would know how to do dishes.
It comes in really handy when you need to clean the cutting board after cutting meat, when you want to wash a knife, when you need to clean out a lunchbox.
I think you get the idea.
If you want to get other great ideas, head on over to Shannon's place.
