If you are washing your dishes by hand, a few tips will help you do it easily, quickly and efficiently.
Instructions for washing by hand: water temperature
Hot water is better for washing in most dishes as it helps to get rid of bacteria and remove grease. In general, the temperature of the water should be over 45 degrees Celsius, but you don't need to reach for the thermometer every time you want to wash your glass. Fill the sink with water that is hot enough that your bare hands are uncomfortable in it for a long time. In most cases, naked skin does not tolerate water at 45 degrees Celsius for too long. To facilitate this process, wear gloves while washing up. Rubber gloves help protect your hands and make washing in hot water more bearable.
The rinse water temperature is equally important. Hotter water helps to get rid of residual dishwashing liquid and bacteria, and speeds up the drying process when you put the dishes on the dryer. It also reduces the chance of streaks and stains.
