Office Checklist - Water Conservation Category: 5. Only run dishwashers when fully loaded or presoak dishes before washing them in running water
Have a schedule for running the dishwasher to ensure it's fully loaded every time it's run.
If your office doesn't have a dishwasher, use a small amount of water to pre-soak dirty dishes instead of scrubbing dishes under running water
Running a half empty dishwasher wastes both water, energy, and money.
Pre-soaking dishes to be handwashed, avoids wasting water needed to scrub off stubborn food.
