This is not one of the fun activities - sorry. But it is a brilliant energy saver. Actually, it IS fun when someone else is doing it. So why not recruit a helper to do it for you, put your feet up and read Football365 for 5 minutes?

Is it safe to set the dish washer at a lower temperature?

Yes, a lower temperature program is perfectly safe. If some of your dishes are seriously dirty, give them a quick scrub beforehand.

Isn't it better to do the dishes by hand?

Good question. Several studies say that most of the newer dishwashers use fewer resources than washing by hand. Some of us are a bit sceptical though - it depends how you do the dishes (temperature of the water, how much you leave the tap flowing etc.

Here the point is: if you are going to use a dishwasher, use it as efficiently as possible.

What if we don't have a dishwasher?

Wash the dishes carefully in the bowl and be sure not to leave the tap running. There are ways to wash the dishes using water really sparingly! Go for it.

What kinds of eco-dishwasher tablets are there?

Here and Here are some we've found. You might need to dig a bit more.
