Let your dishwasher do its job

Prerinse.
If you think washing your dishes by hand saves water and, therefore, the planet, think again.
Research shows that this isn't the case anymore, with dishwashers becoming not only far cheaper to run, but also much more water- and energy-efficient.
"In order to wash the same amount of dishes that can fit in a single load of a full size dishwasher and use less water, you would need to be able to wash eight full place settings and still limit the total amount of time that the faucet was running to less than two minutes," says an EPA official who specializes in dishwashers.
I, for one, am greatly relieved that our taxes are paying the salary of a guy who tells us how to wash dishes.
This year, Washington will spend a near-record $33,054 per household and collect $26,198 per household in taxes. The resulting budget deficit of $6,856 per household will bring the total national debt to nearly $170,000 per household. Federal spending has soared more than $5,000 per household since 2007.
You can be thankful that you're getting some sound kitchen advice for your hard-earned money.
