Dishwashing is one of those chores you'll never escape, and you might as well have an efficient or moderately enjoyable way of doing it.My dad taught me to clean while I cook, which leaves fewer dishes to do when I am really full or just tired. This approach, thankfully long ingrained in me, is a lifesaver in a tiny kitchen with no dishwasher. Otherwise, because I am a normal, busy person, dishes can linger in my sink. When it comes time to handwash, rubber gloves are a lifesaver. If I'm only scrubbing a few things, bare handed, the warm water actually makes the work enjoyable.
