I asked my mother for a silver plated teapot - she gave me this gorgeous one. It looks good, BUT it turns out it is no good for having tea - the handle gets too hot. As I've always disliked the sight of dishwashing liquid on the window sill or around the sink I have kept it in a cupboard underneath the sink. By putting the dishwashing liquid into the teapot I keep the teapot as a beautiful and useful item and take away the effort of opening the cupboard every time I wash up.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Dishwashing Liquid
I use a small bottle of liquid detergent.
Step 2: Pour Liquid
I pour the detergent in, then add some water. The water means that the detergent pours out quite quickly so I have to be aware of how much I am pouring. My theory is if I can use the same amount diluted as I did before I am saving some money.
Step 3: The Final Product
The teapot now lives on my window sill next to the teapot I use for tea. The detergent is accessible, and the teapot is useful as well as gorgeous.
