The Good Housekeeping Institute recommends the following as the correct order in which to wash up kitchen items (after clearing envelopes/keys/food away):

  • Scrape off as much food debris as you can. Give each dish a quick rinse before stacking at the side of the sink ready for washing.
  • Soak by filling really grimey items such as pans with hot water and put them to one side to soak. 
  • Clear up by making sure your sink is clean before you start. Using a plastic washing up bowl uses less water and helps to protect items from the sink's hard surfaces. If you don't have a double sink, the gap between the bowl and the sink means you can still use the hot tap for rinsing.
  • Glasses
  • Mugs & Cups
  • Saucers & Side plates

The UV index does not exceed 8 in the UK (8 is rare; 7 may occur on exceptional days, mostly in the two weeks towards the end of June). Indices of 9 and 10 are common in the Mediterranean area.

In the UK, the sun's UV rays are the strongest when the sun is highest in the sky between 11am and 3pm, from [mid March] to late September. During this time, the sun can be strong enough to cause sunburn.
