Step 1: Scrape off food Use a fork to scrape any remaining food off the dishes. Tip For pots and pans with caked-on food, fill them with water, throw in a used dryer sheet, and let them stand for one hour. Step 2: Fill tub Place the dish tub or large pan in the sink, squirt some dishwashing liquid into it, and fill the tub with hot water. Tip Put rubber gloves on if you want. Step 3: First wash Wash glasses and silverware first, when the water is cleanest. Tip Never put a delicate glass bottom first into hot water, or it may crack. Slip it in sidewise. Step 4: Use hottest water Rinse with the hottest water you can stand. Tip Rinse crystal pieces in one part vinegar to three parts warm water to get them sparkling. Step 5: Wash in order When the glassware and silver are done, continue washing in this order: plates and bowls, serving dishes, utensils, and pots and pans. Step 6: Use brush, pad, or wool Use a brush, nylon mesh pad, or steel wool on tough-to-clean pots and pans, but heed the manufacturer warnings that came with them. Step 7: Let air dry Let everything air dry—it's the most hygienic method. Did You Know? Doing a load of dishes in the dishwasher takes 11 gallons of water, while hand washing them takes 16.
