If you’re washing up by hand…

There is a sequence to this. First make sure your sink is clean (I hate a washing up bowl – they end up all greasy and horrid).

Then scrape off all the food debris.

Soak pots and pans and set aside.

Fill the sink with hot, soapy water and first do items you put in your mouth such as cutlery, glasses, cups.

Rinse under the tap.

Then plates; rinse. Now pots and pans.

Afterwards, remove any bits of food from the plughole and wipe out the sink.

Replug sink, run a little hot water with a capful of bleach and leave your cloth and scourer to soak overnight. All fresh for the next day!
