Working in a professional place, you need to follow these rules other than throwing it on the children to do. The job is so specific, that many owners implement dish washing course and actually teach you to do it themselves.
First you need to prescrape the dish to remove any grime. Then you need to rinse the dishes to make sure it is clean. You sanitize the dishes next as it is very important step in professional facilities. The dishes are then air dried.

If you work in a restaurant or at a church’s kitchen, you are expected to know the rules and to follow a strict set of rules by the health department. They will even come out and demonstrate how they expect you to do your job of washing the dishes.
