Rinsing dishes can use up to 20 gallons of water before the dishes are even loaded. Save yourself the rinsing—just scrape food off dishes. ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers and today’s detergents are designed to do the cleaning so you don’t have to. If your dirty dishes sit overnight, use your dishwasher’s rinse feature. It uses a fraction of the water needed to hand rinse.
Dishwashers use about the same amount of energy and water regardless of the number of dishes inside, so run full loads whenever possible.
Select the no-heat drying option. It gives good drying results with less energy.
