A more energy-efficient way to run your dishwasher. Wash only full loads and use the shortest cycle that will get your dishes clean.
Save water by scraping dishes instead of rinsing them before loading the dishwasher.
Here’s an energy tip. Try turning down the temperature on your water heater. Don’t worry your dishes will still get a good cleaning in your dishwasher because most have built-in heaters to boost the temperature to 140 degrees.
