How to Clean Dishes

“Hello everyone, it is my pleasure to stand before you today and talk about the processes of a very fundamental activity in our daily lives, the activity of dish cleaning.

The basic step of cleaning dishes is via washing. Many people would like to eat fresh home-cooked meals, but when they think of the processes involved in washing dishes afterward, they cower and they instead order foods from hotels. Dishwashing will also help in keeping your kitchen clean and stop you from the excessive dependency on the paper plates. Sometimes some of these paper plates are not so appealing at all. A person who properly knows how to wash his dishes with ease will do so effectively in a way that he will not have to purchase a large number of plates, pots, pans, etc. He can utilize the few utensils he has and then prepares a superb home-cooked meal that he can share with family and friends.

Washing dishes does not have to be a stressful event; neither does it have to make you shy away from cooking. In this talk, am going to share with you the most important process of washing dishes and what you will require so that you can approach the activity as methodical and structured as possible and you take the least possible time. First of all, I will start by mentioning the requirements. The requirements are pretty basic.

First of all, you need warm water. Warm water is needed to effectively wash the dishes. However, if you do not have warm water, you can just use cold water. Warm water is encouraged because it is easier to remove grime, grease, and oil from the plates while using warm water than if you were to use the cold water. The next requirement is a sink or basins in the event you do not have a sink. You also need a good solid or liquid soap that easily lathers.

I am confident that you have now known the basic requirements for washing the dishes. After getting to know about the requirements for washing dishes, it is now important that we get into the nitty-gritty details of the process. The first process is filling the sink or the basin with sufficient amounts of water. You can also fill the basins with enough water for your washing processes. After filling them with water, you need to soak the dishes, pots, pans, plates, etc. in the water for some time before you embark on the actual handwashing activity. Soaking will remove some dirt and it will soften the food particles that have stuck on the plates. Soaking ends with the addition of soap into the water then you embark on the physical scouring to remove the dirt.

The force of scrubbing and scouring depends on the type of utensils. If you are working with delicate utensils such as glasses, you need to be careful but thorough. Ensure that all the dirt is removed and pay attention to the stubborn edges. It is vital to wash the delicate utensils first before you wash the pans.

After that, you rinse the dishes and cross-check that there is no dirt remaining. The last stages of washing these dishes are drying them, storing them away in a clean place, and then ensuring that the dishwashing area is relatively clean. That is majorly what is about the dish is washing. It is not complex, but sometimes it is the simplest things in life that give us the greatest stress. However, a precaution to consider is ensuring that the water is clean and not filled with disease-causing organisms. You should ensure that the soap does not cause any irritating reactions to your body. Thank you very much for taking the time to listen to me."
