I decided to try out a new method of cleaning in the kitchen and alhamdulillah it has really helped!!!
When I begin to cook, I fill a side of the sink about half way with hot soapy water. As I am cooking and I finish using something like the cutting board or a pot, I throw it in the water. This keeps the food from drying or getting stuck.
When I have a few minutes between steps while cooking I can just wipe the thing down with a sponge or rag, rinse it, and leave it to dry.
I know it seems like such a small thing to be excited about but alhamdulillah it feels like a really great victory for me. I conquered my fear of dishes!!
