Which Brushes and Sponges are Best?
When deciding on a sponge and brush, be sure that they are suitable for the task of washing up dishes. You should, under no circumstances, wash glasses and plastic utensils with a brush with hard bristles or a scourer. The latter make the material unnecessarily suffer and scratch. Heavily soiled pots and pans can be cleaned efficiently, however, with a steel sponge. The Hay copper sponge is the ideal tool for stubborn dirt. Copper also impresses with its natural antibacterial effect. Special bottle brushes ensure that narrow bottles are clean as a whistle again. Sponges are ideal for plates and cutlery that are easily soiled.
Tips for washing the dishes by hand:
Order: To make your dishes clean and hygienic, wash the glasses first. This is very simple with a bottle brush. The slim shape fits the brush into even narrow champagne flutes. Glasses are usually the least dirty and should not touch dirt and grease, which interferes with their shine. Wash silverware after lightly soiled glasses and finally dirty crockery. This way everything in the kitchen sink will be as clean as a whistle and hygienic!
Avoid wooden drainers: Germs stick particularly well to untreated wood. However, moisture is also an issue with wood. If the rack does not properly dry it starts to rot. Reach instead for racks made of plastic or stainless steel. Take a look at our washing up stand category.
Clean your sponges: Clean your sponge once a week. You can do this quickly with a microwave: put the damp sponge on a piece of paper towel and heat for 2 minutes at full blast. After cleaning, your kitchen helper will be 99 percent sterile and free of detergent.
