Save water while washing dishes

Although doing the dishes involves using quite a bit of water, there are ways to save water and money while doing them. First and foremost, rinse and scrape off dishes right after they are used, thereby reducing soaking time later on. Fill your sink (if it is a double) with one soapy basin and one clean water basin. This reduces the time that the water is running. Scrub the dishes in the soapy basin and rinse them by dipping them in the clean water basin. If you only have a single sink, wait until you have a group of dishes to rinse all at once. Wash the least dirty dishes first, giving the dirtier ones more time to soak. Lastly, do not use too much dish soap because it takes longer to rinse it off and uses more water than necessary in the process. Read these and more tips at
