Like everyone else, scrubbing dishes is at the bottom of the list of things I want to spend my evenings doing. I have a few simple things I do that save me a lot of time and effort.
If you’ve ever measured honey or peanut butter with a measuring cup or spoon, you know the gooey mess it leaves behind. Simply spray the cup or spoon with cooking spray or olive oil before measuring and the honey or peanut butter won’t stick.
I also spray dishes with olive oil before adding leftovers to reheat. After I’ve reheated the food, I don’t have a crusted on mess to scrub clean. I can just rinse the dish and put it in the dishwasher.
Another way I save clean-up time is by spraying the inside of my slow cooker really well with olive oil before adding any food to it. I love using the slow cooker, but I used to dread having to scrub and scrape the food that would stick to the inside of it. Now, I can usually just wash it without any soaking, scrubbing or scrapping.
I hope you spend less time doing dishes by giving these tips a try.
