How do you use a dish brush?

Place the brush — bristle-end up — in the silverware holder. In addition to daily washing, dish brushes that are used every day should be sanitized once a week. Do this by soaking the bristle portion of the brush in distilled white vinegar for a couple hours. Rinse, shake off excess water and hang to dry.

Most dish brushes can be cleaned in the dishwasher, but if you have one that's made of wood or you don't have a dishwasher, this simple trick will get it clean. If your brush is dishwasher safe, it's safe sitting on the top rack. Just run it with hot water and heated drying.
