What is the right water temperature for washing the dishes?

You don't necessarily need hot water to wash the dishes properly. Of course you cut through grease faster with hot water, but lukewarm water is just as thorough as well as more energy-efficient. There is no reason why you shouldn't generally do your dishes using lukewarm water and a splash of washing-up liquid, such as the Dishwashing Lotion Aloe Vera from Frosch.

How much washing-up liquid should I use?

Here the motto is: "Less is more" – the specified amount is perfectly sufficient for sparkling clean dishes and glasses. You don't need to add more washing-up liquid, even when all the foam is gone. It still cleans just as well. When the bottle of washing-up liquid is empty, go for a refill bag next time. The Dishwashing Lotion Aloe Vera from Frosch also comes in a practical refill bag, which is not only 100% recyclable, it also holds quite a bit more product.
