Wash more sustainably
We all need to do the dishes. And old-fashioned with the brush and tea towel is simply best for the environment. Especially if you don’t always run the tap in between. But then who else does that if there are such twisted handy machines that can do that work for you? Yet you can wash as sustainably as possible to save water and energy. For example, do not rinse everything in advance, but do scrape off the largest leftovers from your plate. Set the machine to the lowest temperature. That is warm enough for most dishes and only runs your machine when it is completely full. Let your machine run at night, that is the least burden on the electricity network. And if you have night power, it is also cheaper.
