Teamed up with Cascade,
dishwashing saves water,
energy, and time

1. YOUR DISHWASHER USES LESS WATER THAN HANDWASHING

Your sink uses 4 gallons of water every 2 minutes, while your dishwasher uses 4 gallons for only one cycle. That means you’d have to wash all your dishes in under 2 minutes to be more efficient than an Energy Star certified dishwasher.
And with Cascade Platinum, you know each dish will come out sparkling clean.

2. WITH YOUR DISHWASHER, EVEN SMALL LOADS SAVE WATER

Being efficient doesn't mean you need a full dishwasher to run a cycle. It only takes 8 dishes to save water with your dishwasher over handwashing. So, run ’em if you got ’em! And don’t forget the Cascade Platinum—no pre-rinse needed.

3. YOUR DISHWASHER SAVES 100 GALLONS OF WATER A WEEK

When you use your dishwasher every night instead of handwashing, you save 100 gallons of water a week. That’s over 5,000 gallons in a year. Or more than 80,000 glasses of water.

4. YOUR DISHWASHER USES LESS ENERGY THAN HANDWASHING

Handwashing uses 4x more energy. Seriously. A new Energy Star certified dishwasher uses about a quarter of the energy used when washing dishes by hand. And to maximize your clean, check out how to load your dishes the right way.

5. YOUR DISHWASHER SAVES YOU 30 MINUTES A DAY

On average, washing dishes by hand uses up a half hour of your day. Every day. You save 230 hours of personal time each year by letting your dishwasher with Cascade do the work over handwashing. What could you do with 30 extra minutes a day? Think of all the other chores you could complete. Okay, maybe not.

Do It Every Night

Running your dishwasher every night saves water versus washing dishes by hand, so skip the sink and let your machine do the dirty work.
