I don't know how to wash dishes correctly

Yaqo Homo | Dec 7, 2007 03:46 PM

I've had my own place for seven years, and I've never owned a dishwasher, but it's gradually dawning on me that my dishes look horrible I wash them and let them dry. Particularly on stainless steel and glass items, there's always film and spots and cloudy, streaky residue no matter how much (or how little?) I wash and rinse. I wish they would just look shiny and clean.

I only have one basin, so I can't use separate sinks for washing and rinsing, if that makes a diference. Help! I need remedial dishwashing tips.
