  1. May I add this: “There’s nothing sexier than a Captain with his hands in dishwater!”

  2. What are your thoughts on a non-hot water wash process? Bleach? etc?????

    • Soap and water work well on their own in cold water — the biggest problem is grease, but elbow grease will eventually get it off. You really don’t need bleach unless the water is suspect.

  3. My favourite is a spray bottle of H2O w/ a touch of vinegar to rinse hand-washed dishes

  4. In truth, I also use a lot of paper towels so dishes are almost ´clean´ by the time we wash 😉

  5. I like work instructions.

  6. We use paper napkins, so I will often use them to wipe the dishes off before I start washing.
