Save dish water

Paso RoblesMarch 5, 2014 

So many people think they need to rinse/wash their dishes completely clean before putting them in the dishwasher. They run a stream of water in the sink to do this. Duh: That is what the dishwasher is for. Simply use a paper towel and wipe off loose food and put dishes directly in dishwasher.

When I bought my dishwasher many years ago, I was told that the detergent is actually made to work with food on dishes and works best that way. Save work. Save time. Save water.
