Breeze through the dirty dishes with these washing-up tips
Pulled the short straw on doing the washing up?
Don't worry, these washing-up hacks will get you out of the kitchen in no time.
1 - Running out of drying space?
Lots of guests means lots more to wash up. If you run low on drying space, grab a clean oven rack and place it over your sink. Voilà!
2 - Let it soak
Another obvious one, but we can't stress how helpful this is. For any burnt on dishes, let them soak in a sink of hot water with our Washing-Up Liquid. The longer you can leave it, the more time the cleaning agents have to work.
3 - Turn up the heat
Hot water makes a massive difference, but your hand might not thank you for it. So purchase a pair of high quality rubber gloves and wear them to wash up. This will allow you to turn the heat up a few notches and breeze though the washing.
4 - Cold Water
It's best to clean off milk based and starchy residue with cold water. The hot water can make it gummy and stick on.
5 - Sponge and sink combo
Run a hot sink with washing-up liquid under the tap. But for the best clean, add a drop of washing-up liquid to your sponge too. It really helps with grease and fats.
6 - Rinse
It seems obvious, but a lot of people don't. after washing in soapy water, rinse your dishes with fresh water - especially glasses.
7 - Wilton London Washing-Up liquid.
Ok, this one might be obvious (to us). Use Wilton London Washing-up Liquids. They're naturally formulated and naturally scented. But that doesn't mean they're no tough on grime. Let them loose on your mountain of dishes, you'll be glad you did.
