In today’s world where technology runs our lives, it is hard for some people to imagine that you can actually wash dishes manually meaning, washing your utensils one by one instead of just loading them in the dishwasher and letting it do the work for you. When you wash your dishes manually then you know what dishwasher soap really means. In hand washing of dishes, no matter how much water you use or what temperature it is, what makes all the difference is the soap and how much of it.
When washing dishes with soap, you first have to choose the type of soap that you are comfortable with, because just like detergents, soaps are also available in various forms including; bar soaps, liquid soaps, powder form and even creamier forms are also available.
Washing using soap can be done in different ways. You can fill the sink with water, of course you will have to block the sink hole to prevent water from running out and add some amount of soap in it. The temperature of the water is to your liking ranging from warm to cold. Hot water cannot work with hand washing because you have to dip your hands in the water. After adding soap you then dip the utensils inside and wash them one by one.
Another way of using liquid soap is have some little water in a bowl, then add a little amount of the liquid soap and you wash your utensils by dipping the washing sponge inside the bowl to get some soap as you scrub your utensils. This method is very economical as both water and soap are used in moderation.
The best dishwasher soap will be chosen according to what works best for you. If you are comfortable with a bar soap whereby you have to rub the bar soap on the sponge that you are using to wash your utensils with, put the bar down and then pick the item you want to wash and scrub, it is all up to you.
The creamy dishwasher soaps are packed in sizeable containers. When you buy them they seem more compact, but the moment you start using them, they lighten up and become creamier thus easy to use. All you need to do is swipe your sponge through it and you scoop a good amount enough for washing several items. It is also very easy to use because you don’t have to waste time to pick it up and rub like in the case of bar soap. Just hold the sponge on one hand, and the cup, plate or whichever utensil you are washing on the other hand, swipe and go on with your washing.
Dishwasher soap is a saving grace especially for those who cannot afford dishwasher machines, or many others who find manual dish washing fun and thus don’t see the need of a dish washer. If you belong to these two categories, then just get the soap that is convenient for you and you are comfortable with, warm the water to your desired temperature and get those dishes sparkling clean.
