I almost always use the dishwasher, but when I do wash them by hand, I never leave the water running. I'm a scrooge.

Yeah, I wash dishes by hand as well ...I have double sinks, so I fill up a flat bucket with fresh water to rinse my dishes so don't have to run water.  :thumbsup:

I wash dishes by hand, after letting them soak for awhile.

       Unfortunately, there is no dishwasher where I am living. I have to do all my dishes by hand. I used paper bowls and plates most of the time. To save water I bought a little plastic box. I pour warm water and soap to use when I have to do regular dishes. I think this will show you how to save some water and aggravation.

I use the dish washer. But when boyfriend does them he only runs the water to rinse them off.

How do I wash my dishes you ask? Well, I typically use soap..and water..and a dishwasher. Lol I also wash some dishes by hand. I load my dishwasher very well so that I can fit as many dishes in it as possible at one time so that I only need to run it once, but I do it just right so that every dish still gets cleaned. Larger items (pots, pans, cookie sheets, etc.) get washed by hand almost always. I don't always have the water running, but if I do it's on a very, very small stream. (I don't have a double sink, so I can't use one side for dirty dishes & then set them in the other side to be rinsed. :/ )

Since my dishwasher is broke I have to handwash the dishes.   I am not a water saver!  (which I probably should be)   I keep the water going....usually!

Well I'm guilty of leaving the water running. I can't stand washing dishes with a sink full of water and soap like they do on the commercials. Using that same dirty water to wash all the plates. Yuck! I had to do that in Puerto Rico when we had no water during Tropical Storm Jeanne and it was nasty. We used bottled water and soap to clean the dishes. It was horrible. If I'm paying for the water I'm going to let it run regardless.


Hi cubarican, hear me in your head next time SHUT OFF THE WATER lol...I know what you're saying thos but wouldnt you want to pay less water?

I wash the dishes by hand and no, I don't leave the water running. My mom hates it and taught me not to do dishes with the water running.
