day 1 - we air-dry our clothes.
day 2 - we hand-wash our dishes. this saves both water and energy. i know most of you are like "no freakin' way am i going to hand wash our dishes!" but, technically, we don't actually have a working dishwasher, thus we are forced to do it. (our dishwasher broke the first month we were in this house and we never replaced it). and, i'll tell ya - practice makes perfect on this one. we can wash dishes REALLY fast - because we do it day in day out, and have done it for years now. we just replaced our drying rack (which was bamboo) because the pieces started to break. we got a new one just like the old one, which lasted about 3 years. and though i say (and have said) for years i want a dishwasher, i suppose that i am just fine without one (though occasionally - like when we have a big party - a dishwasher would be nice!)
