    Dishwasher or Hand Wash?

    Dishwasher or Hand Wash?



    Just curious, but do you use your dishwashing machine or do you hand wash your dishes? If you use a dishwasher, how often do you run it during the week? And, do you rinse your dishes prior to putting them into the rack?

    I do a combo of handwashing and dishwasher; i can't figure out which one is more water saving. I heard running the dishwasher is but what about the rinsing part...isn't that "wasting" water? I average using the dishwasher 1-2 times/week.

    Anyways, it's Monday and I just need to know your dishwashing habits, guys!

    I use my dishwasher all the time. I only wash pots and pans by hand unless I need so etching that is. The dishwasher and not yet cleaned. I rinse well because nothing bugs me more than pulling things out of the dishwasher that didn't come clean. I am sure I waste water but on well..... Think our dishwasher gets run on average every other day or so.

    A Dishwasher was a pre-requisite order for me moving here. Now since he's the house husband Bruce sure is glad I insisted on it.

    I gave up, and removed the FIFTH Dishwasher in as many years that we'd installed. The hard water here kills 'em quickly, even WITH putting vinegar in the cycles!

    In exchange, I got a storage cabinet, a larger sink, and the disposal removed...

    Oh no!! We have hard water too, or soi thought. But it doesn't ruin the dishwasher thank gawd! Think I would have to buy a water softening system before giving up the dishwasher.

    Dishwasher or Hand Wash?



    My dishwasher broke a few years ago and I just never replaced it. I found hand washing took less of my time. Only time I miss it is if I want to sanitize.
