You know what they say: Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest.
How simple is this? We all have to do the dishes. If you have a dishwasher and you’re loading the silverware tray, like after dinner, sort this area into sections -- for example, the forks on one side, the spoons on another, a separate area for the knives, and so on.
If you do this whenever you’re filling up your dishwasher, it’s going to save you from having to sort it all later; for example, when your dishes are clean and you have to unload them.
We can all likely agree: The worst part of unloading the dishwasher is putting away the silverware back into your drawer or organizer. This new tip will make you that much more efficient.
