Money Saving Tip: Dishwasher Savings

Are you looking for some simple ideas to save money? We have simple solutions that you can easily apply to your lifestyle to save money!

Here are a few ways to save a little extra when it comes to the dishwasher:

1. Only run a full dishwasher.

2. Try using half the amount of dish detergent that the dishwasher calls for.  I do this and my dishes still come out squeaky clean.  That means your dish detergent will last twice as long!

3. If your dishwasher gives you the option, turn off the dry cycle and let the dishes air dry.

4. Load the dishwasher carefully so you can maximize space and still get everything clean.

5. Use a homemade dishwasher detergent.  We have a tried and true recipe for it!

    Use vinegar for rinse-aid instead of the expensive Jet-Dry stuff. Works great, super cheap!

    We have a dishwasher named Steve (my hubby :D) I don’t know if it saves money, but we wash our dishes by hand. not necessarily by choice, our apartment didn’t come with a dishwasher… i mean the appliance kind. lol 😀
