Allowing your dishes to sit in piping hot water for 30 minutes or more is usually all it takes to loosen the remaining food residue. But if you have stubborn, baked-on messes that won’t come off, you can also grate some of your solid dish soap bar into your dish pan and give it a quick swish before letting your dirty dishes soak. After 30 minutes or so, scrub your dishes with soap once more. You can also try adding some baking soda to your sink or dish pan to help remove tough stains and smells.
Switching to solid dish soap is an easy, low-waste swap that can go a long way in reducing your plastic waste. Scrubbing with solids can even make doing the dishes — dare we say it? — fun.
Even if you decide to use your solid dish soap for scrubbing and your liquid dish soap for soaking, you’re still cutting back your plastic waste by making your bottled dish soap last longer. That’s better than nothing!
