This is where my granddad used to do his dishes. I love how non-exclusive his kitchen is. No frills, no dishwasher but very practical. It worked for him and his wife for over 60 years. They cleaned the dishes in the zink, filled with soap and water and then they rinsed the plates in the white container holding only water. They never let the water run like I sometimes do. How very ECO-friendly they were.
