For me it’s washing up.
As I shared, I’ve had some success with changing my mindset around this chore.
However, I’m always looking for ways to make cleaning up easier.
My latest trick is incredibly simple.
It makes a big big difference.
I’ve been experimenting with washing out my frying pan (or wok) as soon as I serve up.
While the pan is still hot.
I just run it under the tap.
And give a good scrub with my kitchen brush.
If it’s especially dirty, I use a squirt of dish washing liquid.
Mostly I don’t.
I’m still surprised how much easier it is to clean a hot pan.
Literally the work of seconds.
It means I have one less thing to stack in the dish washer.
And it’s better for my pans.
