Recently, I have made the decision to wash all of the dishes in my house by hand. The dishwasher that came with the house that I reside in is not energy efficient. Therefore, I felt guilty about using it.
At first, I thought about investing in a new energy efficient dishwasher. However, it soon occurred to me that it made more sense to just use my own two hands to get all of my dishes clean. So with that in mind, I started to only use my old dishwasher as a drying rack for all of the dishes that I wash by hand.
