Tips for saving while using your Dishwasher include:
- Scrape, don't rinse, your dishes before loading the dishwasher. Rinsing dishes by hand can use up to 20 gallons of water.
- Wait until your dishwasher is full before you run it. Dishwashers use the same amount of energy whether they are full or not.
- Skip the heat drying cycle.Selecting the no-heat drying option uses less energy and still providing good results.
