The Pot Half Full
When placing pots and pans in the sink - especially during cooking - the temptation is nearly always to fill the pot with water, so the food doesn’t harden and make it more difficult to clean. But did you ever notice how often you run the water after you fill up the pot? Nearly always! So save a bit of water by either using your sprayer on the pot sides (if you have one) or just fill the pot half-way, or not at all. Nine times out of 10 you’ll run more than enough water to fill that pot more than once, well before the food has a chance to harden.
