Any tips for hand dishing?

July 4, 2007 6:04pm CST
I've recently moved and in my new apartment there's no room for a dishwasher, so I have to wash my dishes by hand. No problem there, but it would like to hear if any of you have tips on how to make it more efficient? Any special products that are good at removing grease stains, for example? Any helpful hints are mostly appreciated!

To avoid polluting your sink of water, begin by scraping the dishes of excess food. Stack the dishes in preparation for washing. Tough stuck on foods may need to be soaked first before washing. Make sure you use the correct water temperature. Add dish soap and the water will be ready to begin dish washing. Wash the lightest soiled items first. This usually includes glasses, cups, and flatware. Washing these items first keeps your water fresher and ready to tackle bigger jobs. Wash plates, bowls, and serving dishes. Remember to scrape these items before washing. Wash gently. Keep an eye out for when you should change the dish washing water.
