In a perfect world, I'd have a modern, electric dishwasher to do the job, which uses less water than hand washing when full (for you lucky dishwasher owners). Two sinks is better than one, too: fill one for washing and one for rinsing, and turn the faucet off. But in my rented half-kitchen, I have just a sink and a wee counter, making an already-mundane job even more tedious. But no more excuses!
