Washing a lot of dishes or rinsing dishes for the dishwasher? Try this quick tip – put your silverware in a colander for easy rinsing or washing. No silverware caught in the garbage disposal or down the drain and you won’t need to fish out a knife from the bottom of your sink.
This would probably fall under the ‘Ultra-Organized Clean Freak’ category of homekeeping styles – I’d love it if you checked out my post on Life…Your Way. What homekeeping style do you have?
Wow – so simple and yet so brilliant!

I like the idea of a colander. In the kitchen I use a big pot (that is soaking) for my utensils, but in the kids bathtub I use a big colander for the bath toys (foam letters). It works great to collect and rinse them. http://www.20minutemom.com
Such a simple idea! Why have I never thought of this?!

Also my biggest discovery – a sink mesh. Prevents anything uwanted going down your garbage disposal and destroying those expensive blades- like a spoon.
there is no chore i despise more than doing the dishes (must me from my old waitressing days)… this is exactly how I collect my flatware! I am a poor housekeeper but making a huge effort to improve. I enjoy reading your tips!
This is such a great idea. I use a similar method but instead I put them in a sturdy cup filled with warm soapy water. That way the caked on food will loosen and everything should come clean in my not-so-new dishwasher. 🙂
Good idea! I usually just put them in a bowl/pot/cup depending on what else needs to be washed.
