Default Re: Washing Dishes

I guess I'm reviving this topic. We always wipe out/off our pans n plates with our napkins (paper towels) and put in trash bag. I use a wipe from TubOtowels to get stubborn stuff then wash n rinse. We have always done this even in the big Bounder because we never use hookup campgrounds so translating to the B is second nature. Air dry.

I normally wash it inside the RV.

We wash inside similar to what we did on our boat. Wash dirtiest first and trap the water. If not too dirty use that to clean the rest. Then rinse all and hand dry. Its only two of us so we don't have a lot of dishes and it really doesn't use a lot of water. Key is to not let the faucet run...

I thought you should wash the cleanest first

We always use paper plates and plastic silverware, so washing dishes is cut to a minimum except a few containers used for cooking. Wife & I have a deal, she cooks and I wash.

My husband insisted on sizing our in-progress lithium battery system so that it will run our microwave as well as my computer (I'm self-employed and often take work on the road). We typically use disposable dishes and utensils, but that still leaves the pot and pan that we use to warm up meals on the road. The ability to use the microwave while boondocking does away with pot-dirtying, thus, no dishes at all for many meals.

If you are fortunate enough to rinse them in hot water, they will dry quickly.

I don't think it it is good to do.

Nothing wrong with some bleach in your water. In fact (unscented) bleach is a time tested method of killing bacteria in drinking water.
