We live in an old country house with no dishwasher, so a good dish washing liquid is really important to me. Needless to say, I was intrigued to take on the new Dawn Power Clean 5-Minute Challenge. Could I really get clean dishes in just 5 minutes?
There’s nothing worse than spending my evening or morning scrubbing stubborn grime off of dishes. It’s often necessary to let the dinner dishes soak overnight, which regrettably means waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes.
Here’s a picture of this mornings dishes. Disgusting right?
Thanks to Social Moms I received a bottle of Dawn Power Clean, a sponge, and a cute kitchen timer to take the Dawn 5-Minute Challenge. The key to getting clean dishes with Dawn Power Clean is the 5-minute soak. After this mornings breakfast, I filled the sink with the dirty dishes, hot water and a squirt of Dawn Power Clean. Next, I set the timer for 5 minutes and walked away.
What were the Results?
After the 5 minutes was up, I was easily able to wash all of my dishes clean. I didn’t even need to use the rough side of the sponge! There was definitely a noticeable difference in how easily everything came clean, after Dawns micro-scrubbing enzymes went to work. Plus, afterward my hands weren’t as dry as they sometimes get using some other products.
Here are a few of my tips for making kitchen clean-up a breeze!
1. Prepare one-dish meals or casseroles. I am the queen of casseroles! Preparing and serving dinner in one dish means fewer dishes to clean.
2. Clean as you go. Not having a dishwasher means that my sink fills up fast. If I am baking or preparing a large meal, I try to put dishes in to soak and wash along as I work on the meal.
3. Enlist help. Why do all the work yourself? Getting the kids involved setting the table and washing dishes makes my life much easier.
