I figured I would have gotten an apple for such an admission and eco friendly sacrifice. LOL! Let me explain.... I'm vegetarian so cleaning dishes is easy, no animal fat/grease. My shower is super big, no doors, high ceiling, skylights and it has two water saving shower heads, plenty of room to place dishes to wash and rinse. I enjoy a long hot shower and although I do have a grey water system , I still feel guilty about wasting heated water, so I wash dishes to compensate. I should mention I'm single and when I have quests, which is rare, all kitchen implements are rewashed. LOL!!!

Although I do want to put in a word for less than daily bathing, or at least avoiding daily hair washing. Washing your hair every day encourages oil production from your scalp. There's more about it in this thread.
