Expert releases water-saving tips
Category: Domestic Cleaning
Richard Ehrlich, cleaning commentator, is urging domestic cleaners to use less water when washing-up.
The expert, speaking to the Times, explained that less detergent and water can be used when cleaning dirty cutlery and crockery.
Mr Ehrlich said: "I know that my method works well, and that it uses a minimum of water, washing-up liquid and energy.
"I know this because I've measured the amounts."
First householders are advised to wipe food debris from plates with recycled paper towels in order to remove fatty deposits which can spread to other dishes.
Next, a washing-up brush bearing some detergent should be used to scrub each utensil with a small amount of water and this can be repeated for every item.
Dishes are cleaned quickly as most of the food debris is wiped off with paper towels, explained Mr Ehrlich.
The Low-impact Living Initiative suggests making a natural all-purpose cleaner by mixing one litre of water with two tablespoons of baking soda.
