Use hot or cold water for dishes?

Are you tempted to do the dishes in cold water to save water and energy? However, you wonder if this is a good idea or a bad idea? It is true that doing the dishes in cold water saves energy, but this is not always advisable. Hot water is necessary to clean very dirty dishes with remnants of grease. On the other hand, you do not need to heat the water to the maximum, warm water is more than enough to get rid of stubborn stains and clean the dishes perfectly.

Therefore, for dishes that are not very dirty and do not contain fat, opt for cold water to save energy. On the other hand, if the dishes are greasy, hot water is essential. In addition, you can use warm water for cleaning and degreasing, and then cold water for rinsing.

How to do the dishes in an economical way?

Doing the dishes can be a waste of energy and water if you’re not careful or if you let the water run while you pour soap. Indeed, an open tap runs more than a dozen liters of water per minute.

With a few simple gestures, it is quite possible to do the dishes by hand while saving water:

  • Use two trays,one for soaping and rubbing, and the other for rinsing. The use of tanks makes it possible not to let the water run permanently. In addition, you can use rinse water to clean floors.
  • Start by washing the cleanest dishes and end up with the dirtiest ones to avoid changing the water several times.
  • Soak the dishes in a tray filled with water to make it easier to clean. Indeed, it will be easier to remove the remains of dried and stuck food on plates and pans.

To save even more money, make your own dishwashing liquid. You will need:

  • A cup of white vinegar;
  • A tablespoon of baking soda;
  • Half a glass of black soap;
  • Half a liter of hot water.

Simply mix all the ingredients and stir vigorously, then transfer the preparation to a vial. Your dishwashing liquid is ready!
