 :BangHead: While I grew up, we had a well so I naturally learned to conserve water. I always turn the water off when washing dishes. My son-in-law, on the other hand, makes me crazy when I am there. He will turn the water on to do something, go off to catch something on TV and come back ten minutes later to finish what he was doing. After the first time this happened, I always turn off the water. When he comes back he doesn't realize it at all. My daughter is more conservative and my grandsons even turn the water off while they are brushing their teeth.

Fortunately, I don't have that problem.  I cook & my husband does the dishes.  Great trade off!
Have a wonderful day!

I wash them in the dishwasher usually but since the first of the year when they took the phosphates out of cleaners, I have to hand wash them at least once a week because they build up white scummies from the water.  Hand washing seems better but I hate to wash dishes everyday so the dishwasher is easier for the lazy.  Never leave the water running anywhere any time cause I have always had a well and the well does run dry.

I am really bad at turning off the water, its bad I know. But at least now I realize I am doing it and then turn it off.

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.
