16. How to Green Up Your Clean UP: Dishwasher vs Hand Washing
Show Notes

Hey, Green Junkie!

I am always looking for fun new ways to conserve energy, water and be less wasteful in my everyday life and one of the first places I look is in my daily routines and chores.

So many of our daily tasks can be done with our eyes closed so we often stop looking at how we can refine or tweak these practices and that’s why I like to re-visit them often, to see if there’s an area for improvement.

One area I have improved over the years is dish washing.

Kitchen clean up is literally something you have to do at least once a day or if you have a big family - you might just be doing it several times a day. So this is the perfect task to tweak, improve and learn a few tips and tricks that can help you conserve water and save money. 

In this episode, I am helping you improve your daily dish washing chore and teaching you how you can help our planet along the way.

Here’s what to expect:

  • The great debate: is it better to hand wash or use the dishwasher
  • Tricks to keep your sink clean
  • What detergents and cleaners should you be using with your dishes

You’ll discover that and so much more in this episode.

By the end of this episode, Green Junkie, you’ll be able to save water and be a little more sustainable and energy efficient in your kitchen.
