With the festive season in full swing, gatherings of friends and family at home are inevitable. As hosts, we go all out, from cleaning our houses to preparing mouth-watering dishes and finally laying out the table with our best crockery and cutlery.. But, once the guests leave and the kitchen sink is overflowing with dirty dishes, we can’t help but fret, thinking of the daunting task ahead of us. We especially find cleaning the grease-laden crockery and utensils challenging as water alone does not have an effect on grease and oil because they are hydrophobic. In other words, it is difficult for water to break them down. Hence, stronger cleaning solutions are needed to get rid of them.
Also, the pandemic has only heightened our sense of kitchen hygiene. With all the crockery and utensils passing through the hands of several people, they end up carrying a lot of germs. Hence, it is essential that our dishes are not only clean but also germ-free. Thankfully, we were able to find an effective solution to address our concerns. Read on to know the step-by-step process of how we have been able to clean our greasy dishes efficiently after each party this festive season.
Some Golden Rules to Follow:
Since washing crockery as soon as we use them is impossible during a party, the next best thing is to ensure that we scrape off all the food residue to prevent any stains from settling in.
It’s best to steer clear of abrasive products for the longevity of our expensive crockery. Also, abrasives can cause scratches on the surface of the dishes, which allows deeper access to stains and grease. Hence, we recommend using only mild cleaning products and non-abrasive pads.
