Remember to only use appliances such as your washing machine and dishwasher when they are completely full to save water and money. Some appliances come with different size settings, but even when they do, a full load is always more water efficient than a smaller load. There may be times when you need to use an appliance when it is not full. In these instances, try to make the water level size setting so that it matches the size of the load you're doing.
When it''s time to replace an older appliance with a newer model, opt for an appliance that offers the option of both cycle and load size adjustments. Appliances that offer these settings are more water-efficient and energy-efficient than older appliance models.
Instead of getting a new glass every time you want to drink water or any other beverage, get into the habit of use a single, specific cup or glass throughout the day. By doing so, you will reduce the amount of times that it's necessary to run the dishwasher.
