I am boiling water in order to do the dishes.
Remember my rant about the LL and his family staying here and there never being any hot water, especially for showers?
Well, it’s the same when it comes to washing up. You need super hot water to clean dishes properly. Our water at its hottest is barely lukewarm. It doesn’t cut grease. It doesn’t fluff the detergent – instead, it disappears straightaway, reducing the whole cleaning power thing even more.
So, I resorted to boiling up a jug today and tipping it into the sink.
