Re: washing dishes

Frank -

Watch out for the dish soap - I used it in the South, too.  Then I got smart
and stopped using it.   Guess what - no more probems with the "runs".
If you want to minimize fuel use, clean the worst of the 'gunk" out of your
pot , then boil 2 cups of water and use part of it for coffee or tea and the
rest for washing the pot.  For the stubborn stuff, we carry 1/4 of one of
those 4"x 6" green plastic "scrubbees" in a small ziploc.

What's a fork?
