Green Dishwashing Tip

CHOW Kitchen Editorial Assistant Amy Wisniewski has a more environmentally friendly way to wash dishes: She soaps them up in a tub, and then rinses them all at once. That way, she uses less soap and water. We’ve got more green tips that will put a little ecofriendly spring in your step: Employ your leftover coffee grounds as an exfoliant. Learn how to extend the use of scallions, veggie scraps, and a chicken carcass. Plus, how to clean your counters the environmental way.

CHOW Tips are the shared wisdom of our community. If you’ve figured out some piece of food, drink, or cooking wisdom that you’d like to share on video (and you can be in San Francisco), email Meredith Arthur and tell us what you’ve got in mind.
