This is from Ideal Bite, the weekly environmental newsletter I receive. I don’t think I’ve used the drying cycle on my washer since I bought it. One small thing you can change to do your part…

If your dishwasher’s drying cycle is on, the answer’s a resounding yep. Flip this last cycle off to cut down big on energy bills.

The Benefits

  • Save 15%-50% of dishwasher energy usage.
  • Save as much as $25 per year on your electricity bill.
  • Slowly but surely, your dishes will still dry. Promise.

Best, Hallie
