    This works for me:

    Rinse off large scraps of food.

    In the largest pot, pour in a few drops of liquid dishwashing soap and fill container with about 2 quarts of very warm water.

    Wash everything by hand using a sponge or scouring pad (plastic, non-abrasive.) For really burned on foods, I may use either a scouring powder like Comet or a soap-loaded pad of steel wool like a Brillo pad.

    Wash the inside and outside of pots and pans, as well as lids of any pans. Wash all utensils and tools completely, including handles.

    Add more hot water and detergent if the water cools down.

    When finished washing, dump out the water and start rinsing everything with the hottest water you can tolerate. You want to remove all traces of soap and very hot water does this effectively.

    (Any remaining soap can give you a stomach sickness the next time you cook with those pots.)

    Rinse the outside of a pot or pan first, then rinse the inside so that all soapy water is completely removed last from the cooking side (inside) of the pots or pans.

    Air dry all the pots, pans and utensils in a rack. Takes less time and a towel only gets wetter as you dry from the first to the last item.
