Get rid of the dishwasher, 142°

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.

Here's a link to even more energy savers in the home:

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.
