Kitchen Tip Tuesday...

Saving H2O while doing dishes
We have had the rare priviledge of handwashing our dishes at the last two places we've lived. Actually, truth be told I am starting to like doing dishes by hand...a little;)

To save water when handwashing, don't just let the rinse water go down the drain, fill up the sink (1/2 way may be all you need) with hot water and dip the dishes into the water to rinse.

Great idea, I don't do a lot of hand washing dishes, but I am sure I waste water when I do. Thanks for the tip.

That is always how my Grandma washed dishes and I'm sure she knew what she was doing! :-)

Good idea...we're big into NOT wasting water or anything else around here! Funny that we both wrote about dishwashing today! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I LOVE the picture of your baby, by the way! What a great face!
