Save water when washing the pots

A bit dishy | Water saving - Save water when washing the pots.

When scrubbing up those grimy dishes try to cut back on the amount of hot water you use and how often you re-fill the sink.

When washing the pots it's important to take steps to save as much water as possible. For example, before you turn on the tap, make sure you have all the necessary pots near to hand. The less time you spend hunting round the house for dirty items, the less hot water you will have to keep adding.

Only put in just enough water in to cover a mug lying on its side, rather than filling the sink right to the top and piling all your dishes in. Also be careful not to use too much hot water. Although warmth is important to help break down food and dirt particles, too much is just a waste of energy.

Start with the least soiled items, usually cups, mugs and cutlery; building up to plates, pots and pans. Clean each item thoroughly, but try not to waste any water by using the tap.
