Sink Wash or Machine Wash?

We have heard that dishwashers are better from a water savings perspective, it was great to find this at walletpop.com that shows the comparison of sink versus machine washing. Cheesy, but informative :o)

Appears the video is touchy, bottom line is that sink washing is about 24 gallons versus 7.3 gallons for a dishwasher. Much better for our scarce water supply. Click the above link to watch the video :o)

  1. Hmmmm. . . I'm not sure about this, but I'm willing to test the theory. Please purchase and ship a dishwasher to my home address and I'll let you know the results :)

  2. Try as I might, I can't get past the rinsing before loading into the dishwasher. Since we only run the dishwasher maybe 3 times a week, is it worth it to run the rinse cycle twice before we actually do a wash cycle? Help me, Mr. Wizard! LOL

  3. Plus, most dishwashers heat the water hotter than your regular tap water, so you are not only get a more efficient wash, you are getting a much cleaner and more sanitary dish. And no dishpan hands!

  4. My MIL will let the water run the whole time she is washing dishes. She says she doesn't want to run the dishwasher! I cringe at all the water going down the drain.

  5. This was something that I have known ... same deal with showers v. bathing.
