Washing dishes doesn’t have to be as dull as dishwater if you use these handy tips and eco-friendly cleaning remedies.


Stop that Sticking

When you don’t have time to wash the dishes straight away, sprinkle them with salt to prevent any food from sticking.

washing2Cut through Grease

To cut through grease when washing greasy pans, add a few tablespoons of vinegar to your washing-up liquid.


For a spot-free dishwasher rinse, add a tea-cup full of distilled white vinegar to rinse compartment of your dishwasher. Also you can do this once a month to reduce the soap build-up in your machine when the dishwasher is empty.
