California Cleaning

Not only have a longed to wash dishes in my kitchen sink for the past few months, I have been dying to wash my dishes California style. Raised during a drought in California (“If it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down”), I was used to this eco-friendly way of sudsing and then rinsing a batch of dishes, rather than letting the water run. This had not been a possibility in The Littlest Kitchen until now, since I never quite had the space to spread out the soapy dishes, so I’d let the water run. By buying an extra drain board to place over the burners while I suds up, I am able to create extra space. The thin-ish tray fits under the sink neatly when not be used for its five minutes of the day. I had forgotten that we did this in my first apartment in New York, a nifty trick devised by the Organizing Olympian.
