Use plastic and foil liners religiously
istock/stock_colors From pans to refrigerators to ovens, lining just about anything with plastic or aluminum foil is a lazy person’s key to a tidy kitchen. The secret? Just peel away the liner after use, and your bowl, plate, or baking sheet is instantly clean again. (Use plastic wrap for cold foods and aluminum foil or parchment paper for the oven.) Here are more easy ways to clean your pots and pans.
Take advantage of your dishwasher
istock/AlexRaths A dishwasher is a lazy person’s dream: Without lifting a finger, you suddenly have clean dishes again! But dishwashers can clean so much more than pots and pans; try throwing in shoes, car parts, plastic toys, and tools, too. Some say you can even clean your crusty, Cheeto-stained keyboard in there, as well. (Proceed at your own risk!) But putting these things in the dishwasher is a recipe for disaster.
