Dishwasher Woahs

The Dishwasher is a major contributor to the electricity factor! So instead of having your dishwasher go through the whole process it, stop it before it gets to the drying phase of its cycle! You will save a lot of money buy letting those dishes air dry rather than having the dishwasher do it for you. Additionally, if you’re finding it takes a long time for you to have a fully loaded dishwasher, it may be more benneficial for you to wash and dry the dishes yourself!

Separate Your Washed Clothes

I am almost positive that nobody does this. I know I don’t do it, but I really need to start! The idea is to separate your clumpy, washed laundry before it goes in the dryer. This way, the dryer has an easier time drying the clothes. When they are all clumped together, the dryer has to work harder to get in between all of the clothes. If the dryer doesn’t have to work harder, you’ll save loads on electricity!
