Whether you have a dishwasher or not, here are some tips to reduce the environmental impact of doing the washing up...
- Make sure you fill the dishwasher fully to use energy and water most efficiently.
- Don't rinse your dishes before you load the dishwasher.
- Don't run the dry cycle - the temperature of the water should mean that your dishes will dry naturally if you leave the door open after the machine has finished.
- Invest in a newer, more efficient model with a good energy rating.
Washing up by hand
- If you don't own a dishwasher, using a washing up bowl (rather than keeping the tap running) will reduce the amount of water being used.
- To reduce the need to change the water in the bowl, wash the cleanest items (such as glassware and cups) first, followed by dishes and plates, and finally, pots and pans.
