Get Your Dinner Dishes Done at Our Gainesville, Florida Apartments
Having a nice home cooked dinner is a pleasant way to end the day but frequently ends with a sink full of dishes. While cleaning dishes after a long day may not be fun, letting them sit can make the clean-up job even more difficult, plus it can foster the growth of germs, pests, odors, and other unpleasant hazards.
One of the easiest steps to take in Gainesville, Florida apartments is to clean as you go. After prepping all of your ingredients, wash your cutting boards, knives and other utensils while your oven or stove is heating up. Then while your food is actually cooking, try to clean any dishes, such as measuring cups, you’ve used to measure or hold ingredients.
Once your food is fully cooked, consider using an extra dish for serving. At first, it may seem like you’ll have more dishes to clean if you use serving dishes. But consider this: a pot or pan can take a while to cool down, so any food you leave in a pot or pan can literally cook onto the pan, creating a caked-on gunk that needs to be scrubbed out.
Also, while you wait for your food to cool, fill a sink or a dish pan with a mixture of warm water and dish soap so it will be ready when you’re done eating. Put some of this mixture in any cooking dishes as well, so they can soak while you eat.
After dinner, let your dishes soak in the sink while you take care of the pots and pans. After you remove the worst mess off your pots, pans, dishes, glassware, and utensils, rinse them a bit and load them into your dishwasher for a true cleaning. Your dishwasher also can take care of drying your dishes, which helps keep rust and germs from developing.
