Doing the dishes faster

Doing the dishes like a fast is not as easy a task, especially when it comes to washing dishes by hand. Whether your dishwasher is broken, or you simply do not have it, you prefer to do certain tasks by hand (such as cleaning glasses or silverware), doing the dishes yourself is often necessary.

However, by using a methodological approach, one can achieve a good result rather quickly.

doing the dishes

Equipment you will need

– A basin
– A drainer
– A sponge
– Clean towels
– paper towels
– Dishwashing liquid
– Gloves


First clean the dishes of the leftover food. Fill the sink with hot water then add some dishwashing liquid and some baking soda. Soak the dishes and leave for about thirty minutes. Then remove the plates and discard the water.


Fill the sink or a basin with lukewarm water and add detergent so that it has a very thick layer of soap. Start your dishes by those who are less dirty. Preferably start with the glasses, then the cutlery then the plates depending on the size. If the water gets a bit too greasy or gets too cold, change it. Above all, handle the kitchen knives carefully, keep them by the handle and do not stack them in the bowl. Proceed one at a time.

In addition, washing dishes by hand is done in several ways. It is possible to remove the soapy layer and wipe it with a sponge or a cloth, just as it is possible to leave the dishes under the soap so that the dirt is removed. It is also possible to stack the dishes in the basin or sink or lift them one by one leaving the rest on the counter. It all depends on how you can do it as quickly and efficiently as possible.


To ensure that the dishes dries fast, ensure that the rinse water is warm. Then place the dishes in the drainer and pour the hot water over it until it is completely soaked in the basin or rinse sink. Let cool a little and then rinse inside glasses, cups, bowls, plates. Make sure you have a good kitchen faucet for this. Get some ideas hereĀ


It is possible to let the dishes dry in the open air just as it is possible to wipe it off using a clean towel. In the case of clean towel, start with the glassware then after the cutlery and so on. To do this, rub the glassware with a cloth, a soft, lint-free cloth. Do the same for the cutlery. As for pots, pans and the rest, it is better to use paper towels because on the cloth, they may leave traces of color or grease, ruining the color.
