Green Your Water Use: Dishwashers

Fill up your dishwasher This is a big week for environmentalists, who celebrated Earth Day yesterday, April 22. To protect one of our planet's most precious resources, this week's tips focus on water conservation.

Tip #4: Wash Less, Rinse Less

Newer dishwasher models are powerful enough to get the gunk off, so save water by skipping the pre-rinse. Also, Energy Star dishwashers consume one-third less water than older machines. Try to reuse the same glass several times before washing it, and always run the dishwasher when it's full.
