    This! Our water is restricted to 50oC so I usually give them 5 min then wash them.

    I rinse everything in a little water to start with, and stack them properly.
    Then fill one sink with hot soapy water, the other with hot rinsing water.
    Wash cutlery and cups/glasses, then plates, then saucepans etc.
    If the water gets greasy etc i change it

    I often do one load as i serve the dinner up, so i wash saucepans, chopping boards etc. Then after dinner i wash all the plates & cups etc.

    We don't have a dishwasher so i spend a lot of time at the sink *sigh*

    I fill the sink up with only hot water and dishwashing liquid. Then I pile the cutlery in and when I can brave the water I wash the cutlery. Then I change the water, repeat and stock up as much as I can with plates, cups etc and then repeat again for pots and pans.

    DP fills the sink with very very hot water and then washes just 1 dish at a time and changes when needed. HE gets very cross if you plonk a dish in there and throw his washing out of sync.

    I normally use a dishwasher. But on the odd occasion I do hand wash...
    Fill sink with cutlery, Hot water & Dish washing liquid. Occasionally I might put the glasses/cups in. Then plates, Then Pots/ pans. I have always been taught to do the things that go closest to your mouth first. EG: A fork goes in your mouth all over the tines, a cup only where you sip/drink from.

    Scrape off any left over food, and stack in the dishwasher. Next morning I empty it while I wait for the jug to boil Every so often I rinse my filter and wipe around the door. I brought the dishwasher to save water and energy (and cause I hate doing the dishes so very much ), and rinsing them in water before washing them can actually damage your patterns and pit your glasses sooner.

    Before I got my dishwasher I was pretty slack about doing the dishes (so 2 or 3 times a week ) and then it was hot water and soap, wash the glasses and cutlery (if in a double sink I'd rinse them off in warm water). I'd then do plastics if the water was a bit grubby but not enough for a fresh refill of the sink. If it did need a refill I'd do the plates then the plastics then the pots and pans. I'd wipe up after each lot to make room for the next lot. It used to take ages and I hated it
