Avoid food waste and oils and grease from going down the drain. This puts extreme pressure on the environment. It takes a lot of energy to filter food waste and solidified grease from water.
Try an environmentally friendly washing-up liquid. Choose a detergent that uses organic ingredients. Even better if their packaging is made from recycled materials.
Turn on your favourite playlist. Sing along. Dance a bit. And continue with washing-up. This makes washing-up a bit more tolerable. Want to take it a step up? Turn the kitchen into a disco and invite the whole family.
Did something burn? Do not panic, you will still get that pan clean - even without scrubbing. Fill the pan with cold water and three tablespoons of salt. Leave it overnight and bring it to the boil the next day. Sparkling clean!
Allow the clean dishes to air dry in a drying rack. This saves time and avoids any bacteria spreading from over-used kitchen towels. This also means your kitchen towels need to go in the wash less often. Much more environmentally friendly!
