How is your kitchen laid out, are you stacking up plates in the sink or leaving them lying around? Try to allow your dishes to soak in hot water before washing up in order to get the best hygienic clean possible. If you don’t have hot water, try boiling some water and adding it to cold water to increase the temperature. This also helps in removal of many food products such as rice.
How many dishwashing products do you have lying around in the kitchen?
