Secrets of Success

Run That Dishwasher



I found that if I go ahead and run the dishwasher even if its not "full" I am less likely to get behind on dishes and the kitchen. whenever I wait to have "full" dishwasher usually I have to many dishes and have run out of clean plates. so its better to spend the extra money and run the dishwasher as is

  • I would not waste water like that. Ecologically irresponsible - by JUNEAU2010
  • Good idea! I have a double dish drawer so it's not a worry for me, but anyway I believe it is greener to use a dishwasher than fill a sink then rinse your dishes. I pop my dishcloth and dish brush in there too to give them a good clean. - by FIFIFRIZZLE
  • Living alone can sometimes make it hard to get a full load. I made sure that all my pots and pans are dishwasher safe and add the cats bowls to fill it up. I never have to run a load that is not full that way. I lived too long in water starved Southern California NOT to run a full load. - by MARYELLEN301

    Thanks that is a great idea since 1. It doesn't take that much water,
    2. I don't have to pay for water where
    we live.

  • While I also respect wanting to keep up on the dishes, I agree with Juneau. We all have a responsibilty to use our resources wisely, now more than ever. The American Southwest is currently experiencing the most severe drought in written record. I can sacrifice a few dirty dishes to help ensure clean water for future generations. - by LOJOLARSEN
