Little Green Lies

Here at our house we're pro-planet. So in an effort to save some water I decided to try something I heard about on the radio. Apparently, you can save 12,000 gallons of water a year if you just scrape your dishes instead of rinsing them before putting them in the dishwasher. And, the report claimed, any standard dishwasher can clean your dishes without a pre-wash rinse. Well, last night the dishes went into the washer without the usual rinse. The result? Disaster. My dishes came out of the washer covered with baked-on mystery food bits. They then had to be soaked and rewashed. Nightmare. From now on I think we'll just stick to recycling and our new light bulbs.
