  • Liquid hand soap or even bar soap. Just make sure you rinse it really well.

  • hand soap? shampoo? personally I'd let the dishes soak in hot water so they don't get too gross until I can make a run to the store

  • The bleach and hot water sounds like it would work.
    I don't know anything else just wanted to tell you DO NOT USE SHAMPOO,lol.
    Just in case it crossed your mind. My friends husband used to work at a company that manufactured shampoos and if there was a misprint on the bottle or anything they would toss it by the box full and it was either trashed or up for grabs by the workers. So, my friends husband would bring home a TON of shampoo. She began to use it to wash the ishes, wash her floors,wash her clothes..OMG..anything you can think of that required soap, she'd try it,lol. Her dishes were SO greasy and nasty and had a nast y smell it made my stomach hurt. I couldn't even drink a glass of water at her house.
    Anyway..just thought I'd forwarn ya,lol.
