True or false

#1: Using my dishwasher wastes more water than handwashing. 

A running faucet uses 15 litres every 2 minutes. Dishwashers use 15 litres per cycle.
False
Why?

Handwashing uses more.

Your sink uses 15 litres of water every 2 minutes, while your dishwasher uses 15 litres for only one cycle. That means you’d have to wash all your dishes in under 2 minutes to be more efficient vs. an Energy Star certified dishwasher. And with Cascade Platinum, you know each dish will come out sparkling clean.
