    Default How do you wash dishes?

    I wash dishes with soap then rinse under very hot running water.
    An ex housemate washes them in a sink filled with soapy water and doesn't rinse.
    A friend fills 2 sinks of water, 1 for soap and the other for rinse.

    How do you do it?

    I pile as many dishes as I can into the sink. Fill with pure hot water and dish washing liquid. When I can stand to put my hands in, I wash the dishes :-)

    i fill the sink with super hot water, dishwashing liquid.
    then i do the glassware first, plates (cleanest first, dirtiest last), cutlery then pots/pans and stack them in the dishrack.
    i don't rinse (we are on a watertank so try to minimise as much water use as possible).

    I'm so bad, I wash under running hot water. Dish liquid is optional (usually just on greasy stuff.

    Most stuff goes in the dishwasher.

    I'm bad too... Wash under running water with one of those things you put detergent in with a sponge on the end and rinse after. I can't for the life of me think of what the damn thing is called!

    Step 1. I put water in, then soap.
    Step 2. I wash bottles, plates, cups cutlery, pots/pans ect.

    (explanation, we have one teeny tiny sink. We have one teeny tiny kitchen, and one teeny tiny dish stacker. So i have to do plates first or nothing fits.)

    At our house i do bottles, cups, cutlery, plates, pans/pots. OR i rinse and use the dishwasher.

    If I have a kitchen with a double sink, I fill one with hot soapy water and the other with cold water to rinse. In my current house I only have the one sink so it's filled with hot soapy water and there is no rinsing.
    And it's always the same order- glasses/cups/bottles, cutlery/utensils, plates and then saucepans/frypans.
