While we typically enjoy throwing parties at home, the aftermath…
…which includes a mound of filthy cutlery in the kitchen sink, is never something we look forward to. We’ve stood there wondering how to make our dishes squeaky clean again in similar instances.
Can You Wash Kitchen Utensils
Can you wash kitchen utensils? Yes of course! But it depends on how dirty they are. If the utensil is clean, then yes you can wash them in a sink or tub with warm water and detergent. However if it’s really filthy, like when someone has been cooking spaghetti sauce all day long, then I wouldn’t recommend washing those things in your regular dishwasher. Your best bet would be to hand-wash them as soon as possible after using them so that they don’t get into any more food than necessary.
If you do want to use your dishwasher for this purpose though, make sure there isn’t anything stuck between the dishes before putting them inside. This will cause clogs which could result in damage to your machine. Also try not to fill your washer too full because some people have reported their machines breaking down due to being overloaded by heavy loads.
Removing stubborn stains from masalas, gravy, turmeric, and other common Indian cooking spices is a time-consuming process, especially if the liquid detergent we’re using isn’t particularly strong. We’ve also tried home treatments like vinegar and coffee, but they’re not always efficient in removing burned food and other tough stains. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of simple tips for cleaning your kitchen equipment to keep them looking brand new!
The important of washing kitchen utensils
Why is it Important To Wash Kitchen Utensils? Washing kitchen utensils helps prevent cross contamination among foods. When preparing meals, it’s hard to avoid coming into contact with different ingredients such as sauces, oils and seasonings. Washing these items thoroughly prevents bacteria growth which might otherwise contaminate your meal. As an added bonus, doing so also keeps the environment cleaner since no one wants to eat off of stained cutting boards.
How to Wash Kitchen Utensils by Hand
- Step 1:Remove Leftover Food: Scrape large bits of leftover food off your utensils and discard in the trash. Throwing leftover food crumbs in the kitchen sink may plug the drain and leaving you with an even greater problem to clean up.
- Step 2: Fill the sink halfway with hot water. Fill the kitchen sink with hot water after closing the drain. Hot water makes it easier to remove dirt and remove stubborn stains. It cuts down on the amount of time you’d otherwise have to spend scrubbing. To this hot water, add 2 drops of an efficient dishwashing liquid. Do the dishes as quickly as possible. To keep them clean and glossy, use Vim Dishwash Gel.
- Step 3: Soak the soiled dishes. Place your soiled dishes in the sink’s soapy water. Place the dishes that are less filthy first, followed by the dishes that are highly soiled.
- Step 4: Each utensil should be cleaned. After removing the boards and utensils from the water, use a liquid dishwashing solution, such as Vim Dishwash Liquid Gel, to them and scrub away all stains with a brush. We’ve found that once the boards have dried, there will be no stains for you to deal with. This is due to the fact that Vim Dishwash Detergent Gel is an extremely effective dishwashing liquid for eliminating stubborn and oily stains! It possesses the power of lemons, which works wonders on discolored kitchenware.
- Step 5: Rinse the utensil well. After cleaning the item, thoroughly rinse it with tap water. Make certain that the utensil cleanser is completely gone.
- Step 6: The utensils should be dried. To dry your utensils, use a lint-free kitchen towel. Alternatively, place them in a drying rack to allow the utensils to dry naturally. You may avoid watermarks on your stainless steel flatware this way.
