Wait until the dishwasher is full

Published: Saturday, Apr. 12, 2014 - 12:00 am

This is part of a weekly feature in Home & Garden, highlighting ways residents can save water.

•  Run the dishwasher only when full.

Depending on the efficiency of your dishwasher, this saves 2 to 4.5 gallons a load. If you can eliminate at least two loads a week, that saves 200 to 500 gallons a year.
