Tips

.WASHING OFF DAIRY PRODUCTS

Use cold water to wash off starches and dairy products, because they get gummier in hot water. 


.SAVE WATER, ENERGY AND TIME

Washing the dishes properly, in a plastic dish tub, rather than one at a time under the tap, will not only save water and energy but also save time. 


.GET RID OF STUBBORN GREASE RESIDUE

The sooner you wash pots and pans after using them, the better. Because salt is absorbent and a natural abrasive, it is an excellent antidote to grease. Rub salt into especially dirty pots and pans with a dry sponge until greasy residue is gone. 


.TACKLE BADLY BURNED POTS

Fill badly burned pots without nonstick coating with cold water and 2 or 3 tablespoons salt. Let soak overnight. Slowly bring the water to a boil; the burn marks should disappear. (You may need to repeat a few times.) Then wash as you normally would.


.REMOVING COFFEE AND TEA STAINS

Try baking soda on a sponge to gently remove the coffee stains. You can also use a few drops of Bingo Multi Usage Gel on very stubborn coffee stains. 


.KEEP GLASSES FROM GETTING CLOUDY

If glass dishes begin to look cloudy, wash them with vinegar to clear up the glass.
