New dishwashers can be more efficient than washing by hand in a bowl. Some use less than 12 litres per cycle!
- Use a washing up bowl and turn the tap off to save up to nine litres of water a minute.
- Regularly clean your taps and use a mild disinfectant. This prevents the build-up of limescale which could provide a base for bacteria to grow on.
- Scrape plates into a food waste bin instead of rinsing them under a running tap – it will save water and help to avoid sewer blockages too.
- Wait for a full load before starting your dishwasher.
