Good lord, I really am an old woman. This is exactly how I do my dishes in my little plastic tub. I'm channeling my great grandmother.

Casey

Fantastic! I usually just let the water run while I do dishes (so awful, I know... :p), but I'm thinking I may try this method over the weekend to see if I cut down on water waste. ;) Thank you so much for doing the researching and sharing this with us!!!

Thanks for this great post! I usually wash dishes this way, minus the tub (I have a double sink), but now I'll be thinking of how 'vintage' the process is, which will make washing dishes more fun! LOL

Casey - Let me know what you think about this method of washing when ever you try it.

Megan + Ann - I'm glad to see this way of washing isn't completely gone!

Sarah

This is really great. My husband and I are about to move into a house we bought that has no dishwasher (that's no joke!). I'm actually looking forward to being dishwasher free (again, no joke! :)). Thanks for passing along this fun tidbit of information!

One of the oldest orange trees in California was brought by a housewife who watered it with her dishwater.

Seriously!? I never knew there was articles for people like me! I'm 32 and pop on some 'Ink Spots' while i wash dishes exactly like this! I never knew there was a world of special vintage freaks like me out there! Thanks for these articles!
