85% OF PARENTS WANT MORE CONTACT WITH THEIR CHILDREN. May we suggest doing the dishes?
What is your purpose in life?…
True, non-digital contact is decreasing more and more. Parents with busy schedules and children born in the digital age tend to experience this the most. Finding activities
to do that involve no technology could be the way to create more quality time!
85% of parents want more contact with their children in the current digital age. We suggest doing the washing-up together...
DISH BRUSHES READY? START!
Use the same glass throughout the day by rinsing it rather than getting a new one out. By using the same glass, you could save about two to three glasses in the washing up.
A good start is half the work: that also goes for the washing-up. Put the dishes in the right order before you start. First glass and cutlery, then the plates and pans. Glass becomes extra clear because of the warm, clean water, and cutlery gets a shine. Do the pans last - they'll be the most dirty.
One is enough
Two different ingredients that need to be cooked in water? Save on washing up by cooking the ingredients in one pan! If they have different cooking times, add the one with the shortest cooking time later.
I WANT MORE TIPS
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!
