Wave goodbye to hand-washes

Dishwasher brand owners will be pleased to learn that a science report advises consumers to stop washing dishes by hand and start using a dishwasher. They say washing dishes by hand adds up to 6,000 gallons of wasted water in a home each year. To clean a dish properly, the water temperature needs to be around 140 degrees - heat too painful for the human hand.
