This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Nest.

In this Badge Bit, you will clean an oily dish without soap  (Note that this BB is part of an 8-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Jeeves List. You must complete eight Badge Bits in the Jeeves List.)

  - Cleaning with Water
  - Can You Wash Dishes Without Soap?
  - Low Water Consumption Technique For Washing Dishes

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - clean an oily dish (plate or bowl--not a skillet/pan/pot/etc) without soap
      - 95% goes into a compost or animal bucket
      - 4% can be wiped out with a piece of paper that will later be a fire starter
      - last 1% is removed with hot water
      - end result is squeaky clean

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
   - a picture of the oily dish
   - a picture of the food scraps going into a compost or animal bucket
   - a picture of the plate being wiped with a piece of paper for future fire starter
   - a picture of the last bit of oil being removed with hot water
   - a picture of the newly clean dish
   - OR a 2-minute video of you doing this

This is kind of a cheat, but in our house, we use the cast iron pots for cooking high-grease food.

Sorry, it has to be a dish: a plate or even a bowl.

Husband cooked hotdogs for dinner--cue the oily plates! Scraped with one of those lovely Pampered Chef do-dads that my mom bought when she was convinced to go to one of those parties years ago. Thanks Mom for buying something so useful! Scraped the oil into our oil jar. Once the jar gets full, I heat it up enough to melt the oil and pour it in a whole dug by a fruit tree (any spoiled meat/cheese scraps go in there, too)

I should have used thicker paper, but it otherwise went well.

We had buttery fried eggs with breakfast this morning. I decided to give this approach a go on one of the plates. Results are quite good.

There wasn't much in the way of food scraps, but I took a picture nonetheless.
