    Dishwasher Vs Hand washing? Friday Quickie

    dish washing vs dishwasherWhether you are hosting a festive party over the holidays or offering to clean up after one you attended, there’s always the dilemma of dishwasher vs. hand-washing dishes.

    So which is better for the Earth?

    Good news: I give you permission to be lazy.

    Using a dishwasher can reduce water use by 80% and less soap than washing dishes by hand. Dishwasher-less? Use that handy drain stopper and wash dishes in one sink.
