How to Cut Your Washing Up Time in Half

I don't really know anyone who enjoys washing up. It's easy to enjoy having a pile
of clean dishes, but the actual task can drive people up the wall and around the bend.
And back again!

Imagine if you could cut your washing up time in half....

Here's the deal, you find every pot, utensil, piece of cutlery and miscellaneous items that are made of aluminium.

How do I identify these items? I hear you ask.

Well, it's easy. They are the ones that are very stained and seem to take a lifetime to scrub!

I have a ladle that takes about 10 minutes to scrub clean with the hardest scourer known to man (or woman!)

In fact, this ladle takes nearly as much time to clean as the rest of the dishes!!

Okay, now you have your aluminium items, gather them up and go shopping for replacements. Replace each aluminium item with an equivalent item made from stainless steel.

Then throw the aluminium gear in the bin.

I replaced an aluminium grater with a stainless steel equivalent - it now takes a quick once-over and it's clean!! (and it stays clean!)

Using stainless steel instead of aluminium uses less water, less detergent, you go through less scourers, and best of all, less elbow grease!!
