Get rid of the dishwasher, 202°

Out of the Homestead we got rid of of the old dishwasher right away. They use a lot of water and a lot of energy. We wash our dishes by hand. We also converted the space previously occupied by dishwasher into our recycling area.

We have a Fisher & Paykel dishwasher which uses *less* water (11.6L) on an eco cycle than filling the washing-up sink-bowl (12L). In addition, how many dinner washups has anyone every done in their kitchen sink that only took a single sink-full to clean? :-)

Agree with Russ. Modern dishwashers can use half the energy, one-sixth the water and less soap, than washing by hand. Don't start the dishwasher till it's full and air dry.

I don't have a dishwasher, wash dishes by hand and don't rinse the dishes with water constantly running.

My water bill went down by about 1/3 when I got a dishwasher! They are environmentally friendly, except perhaps for the machine itself.
Also I was spending about an hour or 1.5 hrs/day washing dishes! Being liberated from hand washing was wonderful.

Hand washing is the only way to go! At least for us, we left all of our major and minor appliances behind when we moved off grid.

I do not use a dish washer.
I have a domestic hand and she cleans them morning and evening.
I made it a rule that she will not run water till are scrubbed first. Then she would run a very thin stream of water from the tap so that water is not wasted.

I won’t completely agree with you here. Because dishwasher comes into help when there need of cleaning many plates. That could be the aftereffect of a party or get together. It is a good thing to wash the plates yourself. But it is okay for four or five. Never easy for more than 10!
