I need a push to get the washing up bowl out and ditch the dishwasher, which I use at least once a day.

Anyone know...

- how much water a dishwasher uses?
- how much it costs to run each time?

I have eco, normal and power washes but usually stick to normal as eco doesnt wash properly.

Thank you.

a full dishwasher is better for the environment than washing by hand even on a normal wash

I reckon a full dishwasher much better than washing up all day, too.

I'd geared myself up for hours at the kitchen sink... hmmm Im off to find a cream cake and make a cuppa then!

Read that dishwashers use less water than hand dish washing. Have ours on once a day (I'm expert at cramming it full) Dishes much cleaner in machine and they have been sterilised by steam and boiling water you couldn't stand on your hands.
