Well, one evening as I stood washing the plates in a counter-clockwise direction, Mrs McDanger, visibly irritated by my insistence that she dry them with a tea towel instead of letting them air dry, muttered 'why don't you wash the dishes the normal way?'. Now I was aggravated too.
Do you consider McMethod 1 or 2 to be the most effective?
McMethod 1: Start with a dry sink, the water running at a trickle. Soap and wash each dish and rinse it before stacking and moving onto the next one. Be mindful of saving water by remembering to occasionally turn off the tap.
McMethod 2: Fill up the sink with hot water and soap. Add all the dishes to the water, wash and stack on the side. Refill the sink with water, put all the clean dishes back into the water, rinse, and stack.
So, being the intrepid reporter that I am, I have decided to take advantage of the quiet week ahead on Nuts to discover even more ways or combinations of washing dishes that we have not yet discussed.
