You can have clean dishes ready in 15 minutes without spending more than $10 on new cleaners.
For the last 20 years, Bruce Lubin and his wife Jeanne have been collecting tips and hints to save time, money, and make everyday tasks easier. Their book “Who Knew?”by TeleBrands includes thousands of money saving secrets for cooking, cleaning, and all around your home. We are republishing a fabulous cleaning tip from the book on how to clean your kitchen.
How to Clean Your Kitchen
Step 1: Get a glass jar.
It will be the one your dishes go in.
Step 2: Put 2 cups of bleach in the jar.
Step 3: Add enough water to cover bleach.
Add boiling water.
Mix well and let sit for one hour.
Step 4: Empty the bleach.
Dump it out, and rinse with plain water.
Step 5: Rinse your dishes.
Use 2 cups of bleach to wash them. The recipe is as follows: 1 cup of bleach
2 cups of plain water
Step 6: Empty the bleach.
Empty the jar into a bowl.
Then fill the bowl 3/4 with water and place back with the lid on the jar.
Fill the bowl with boiling water.
Step 7: Add the clean dishes and wash the dishes.
Wash it with cold water.
Make sure the dishrag is rinsing out the dishwater.
Do not use an excess amount of vinegar or soap in this process.
The dishrag will remove the soap and vinegar from the container.
Step 8: Drain the water.
Let the dish drain for at minimum 30 minutes.
If you want a faster drain, pour a quart of water through the dishwasher.
Step 9: Rinse the dishes and put them away for a few hours.
Take them out of the dishwasher the next day and let all the water drain out of the dish.
Repeat this process several times a day.
The dish rinses very well, so you will hardly have to wash them much.
Do not put them in the dish washer with bleach.
Step 10: Put on your favorite clothes for the day.
Let them dry on the clothesline for about 6 hours before you put them in the bag.
How to Clean Your Dishwasher
Step 1: Fill the dishwasher and place the clothes and clothes hangers inside.
Step 2: Run cold water through the dishwasher.
Step 3: Turn the heat down to minimum.
Step 4: Do not run the warm setting longer than 15 minutes.
This is required after the washing machine is fully assembled and ready to use.
Step 5: Remove the lid
Step 6: Unpack it.
Step 7: Start the cycle by running cold water.
Step 8: The cycle is complete when the water in the bottom of the machine has all been absorbed by the dirty clothes.
Step 9: Take the dirty clothes and put them in the dryer set to the lowest setting.
Step 10: When that cycle is over, wipe them on the clothesline and on the towels.
Repeat this process several times a day for 3 days.
Do not dry these clean clothes in a towel because doing so might make them stiff.

Step 12: Now remove the bag from the dryer.
Repeat this cycle until the dirty clothes are washed.
