There's a great "John Henry" parody just waiting to be written about this.... "he was a dish-washin' man."


My dishwasher broke, and I haven't replaced it....maybe this is my justification to replace it with a wine fridge? How is the efficiency on that?

Your blog is very beautiful! I like! Oh, you have a special creative ah! I hope you find time to share with me! Ah tell me your experience

Energy Efficiency

It's amazing that some dishwasher only need 1.6 gallons of water to wash every single one of your dishes. I need 1.6 gallons to wash a fork. I believe as this green trend continues there will be more and more efficient appliances on the market.

That scientific exploration, once forced into with practical for the purpose, or forced to react to the problems of daily life, it is not repeated scientific exploration is a vulgar misunderstanding. In fact, the real world is perhaps the most abundant research questions good source, they call to explore basic science.

Hmm. Your article discusses the amounts of water, but what about the amounts of electricity consumed, or the resources used in the making of the dishwasher? Were those numbers included in the evaluation of the dishwasher? And what about the extra square feet of space the dishwasher takes up in your house--which you must heat and cool? I've not yet seen a house that gives up its kitchen sink, although they are probably out there.

I also wonder about the costs of the products used to wash dishes by hand as opposed to dishwasher detergent. How do these compare? Add in the cost of things ruined by being put in the dishwasher when they shouldn't be (wooden spoons, cast iron, fragile china, etc)--because at my house that became quite an issue :)

And, there's the possibility, as in my case that the dishwasher is used only a certain amount of time in a week. I only use mine every 6 days---when the whole machine is finally full to capacity. (mousetrap)

I think I would let the (human) dishwasher get on with it if he so desired, if that would mean that I never had to unload the (machine) dishwasher.

If you want to live a greener life, then try installing solar panels in your home. Doing this cuts electricity costs by more than 60% and these devices need little or no maintenance at all, plus it's recyclable too, so it is truly a wise investment.
