Love the big sink idea!!

How about a foot pedal for turning the water on for rinsing, so it doesn't have to run..

Oh, bad idea with kids who would waste water playing with it.

How about a sensor that turns on the water when you put something under the faucet. I believe those really exist. That would rinse well and conserve water. You could offer to pay for it. Just an idea.

Edited for typo correction.

I love using a washcloth.  IMO, they stay sudsier longer.  Plus, they are SO much easier to clean.  I have about a MILLION washcloths that I rotate.  They sell ones now, I've seen them at both Walmart and Target, that have a layer of scrubby mesh sewn to one side of the washcloth.  I use those a lot, and they work really well.  :) 

 

There are days I will use more than one washcloth b/c I refuse to let them sit between meals and grow bacteria (same concept as a sponge IMO), so as soon as I'm done with a load of dishes I will put the washcloth in the laundry room to be washed, and I grab a clean one the next time I need to wash a load.
