Glasses first as why would you wash glasses in dirty, non fresh water?

What kind of unhinged lunatic does the pots/pans/baking trays first?

Nah. Pots and trays left to soak, first plates, then cups, then cutlery, then pots and trays

I’m probably not very thorough with my washing up it has to be said, good enough will do

don’t really get why you need to dry anything, just leave it on the rack until the next day, job done

Get the big boys out of the way first. Pretty much my philosophy for everything.

(although if something needs soaking I will obviously let it soak first)

Hardly ever need to let things soak. Sounds like you’re getting cooking wrong.

Mind you, get some fairy platinum in next pay day. Will change your life

I’d swap pot & pans with trays, but otherwise, yup, same as me.

Glasses
Cups
Plates
Cutlery
Pans

I employ the @kermitwormit method of soaking the cutlery, usually in a saucepan. Sometimes leave the pans til later, depends how nonchalant I’m feeling.

My top tip is and always will be

Made scrambled eggs? Soak that pan in COLD water

Thank me later

One good thing I’ll say for the Finns, and probably all the nordic types I dunno (@whiterussian?) Is that they have washing up CUPBOARDS where they stick their recently washed plates and such to dry. Out of the way, so you’ve not got loads of dishes hanging about looking untidy, but they dry in the cupboard and that’s that, no fucking around drying dishes like a total moron, gbol

When I’m a millionaire I’m buying a good set of non-stick pans for all of you. The fuck is all this soak chat.
