1. Gather all your dirty cups in your sink.
2. Add the dish soap and water.
Fill your kitchen sink with very hot water, enough water, that is more than half, but less than to the very top. Add a squirt of dish soap in the water, and on a sponge, and make sure your sponge is wet, with dish soap on it. Put in all the cups into the hot water in sink and start cleaning. Once you are done with the cups, you can wash your plates, cutlery and cooking utensils.
3. Scrub the cups with a sponge, the handles, the bottom and insides, getting stains off the cup, and also wipe clean the top, where you put your mouth on the cup, for, it is unclean to not wipe the mouth part.
4. Scrub extra hard when cleaning coffee stained cups in sink.
Coffee stains, and other stains, need some work to get clean, so scrub a little harder, but also let all the cups soak in the hot water longer, for that gets the stains looser, and easier to get clean.
Rinse off the soap and water, and make sure you rinse well in very hot water.
6. Dry your dishes.
Some people like to buy a rack to hang your cups, so the water drips off the cups. But, if you want your dishes to be done quickly, hang your cups on a rack. When you're done washing all the dishes, wipe the dishes with a cloth towel. You might want to wash your towel after drying the washer.
7. Put away your clean cups.
Put away your clean cups, and other dishes in a cupboard, or somewhere safe from getting dirty, and where you can grab one with out breaking a cup or other dish.
8. Use a kitchen rug near the sink to prevent broken cups.
Purchase and place a kitchen rug near the sink. If you drop a cup during the washing, it's less likely to be broken and one under where you will gather cups from time to time.
