The weekends are often packed with fun-filled activities but when Sunday morning rolls around, it’s time to start doing your chores. You know how important it is to finish the chores early so you can enjoy the rest of your day. You notice the stack of dishes in the sink for your dinner party the night before and the pile of laundry that needs to be cleaned for the kids before they go back to school tomorrow. Don’t start your tasks just yet, you might reconsider how you finish your chores. We reviewed how much energy each appliance typically uses.
Let’s review the wattage:
Washing Machine = 1,000 Wattage < Dishwasher = 1,500 Wattage
Take that pile of dirty clothing and throw it into the washing machine. If you are interested in saving energy, put on the dishwashing gloves and begin washing that stack of dirty dishes by hand instead of using the dishwasher. If you are in a hurry to get your chores done, have someone help you dry the dishes while you wash them.
