Carbon fast – Day 9

Let your dishwasher breathe. Run the dishwasher only with a full load, and skip the energy-intensive drying cycle by choosing the “air-dry” option; or just open the door overnight.

The dishes dry very quickly if you open the door immediately after the wash cycle, when everything is still hot.  As an added benefit, this drying method provides some much-needed humidity to the dry winter air.
