To keep pots shiny, especially after boiling starchy foods like pasta and potatoes, add a few splashes of the cheapest vinegar you can find when you clean the pot with dish soap.

Scrunch up kitchen foil and use instead of a pot scourer to remove stubborn stains from metal pots and pans.

Fill the pot/pan/dish the hot water and add a tumble drier sheet, (you can even get a second use from one that you've used in the tumble drier already.) leave for 15 minutes to soak or use as you would a dish cloth. The food will just lift off no scrubbing required works on everything from lasagne to roasting pans!

Do remember to rinse items thoroughly after soaking in bio washing powder.

Sorry Margie, but if you have any chipped crockery you should throw it out as those chips or cracks harbour bacteria and germs and also not to mention the danger of someone actually swallowing particles of the damaged crockery while eating from the broken plate etc

Any stubborn baked-on grease and food will slip off a dish if it is soaked in a tablespoon of dishwasher powder and warm water for a couple of hours. No elbow grease needed.

Pour some hot water in the sink with a splash of washing-up liquid and put all the sticky spoons, spatulas and bowls when you are done using it. When the cake is in the oven you have a much easier job washing up or putting it all in the dishwasher.

My rule is if you cook, you clean. I would rather do my own clearing up than follow on from someone else being "creative" and imagining they have an army of washers up behind them!

Use olive oil/veggie oil to keep moveable parts on kitchen equipment free moving

If you have a chipped plate or dish, always keep in on TOP of the pile so that you keep using it; that way, if you are going to break a dish, there's a good chance it will be the one that's already chipped
