Sponsored Post: How to maximise savings on your dishwasher:

The dishwasher: a kitchen appliance that is an everyday necessity yet whose usefulness is somewhat taken for granted. The modern family bases its life upon the easiness with which we can wash dishes or even pots and pans. You and your family can make as much of a mess as you like, knowing that you have your dishwasher to clean it all away!  

However, there’s far more than meets the eye to the modern dishwasher. For example, the effectiveness of a dishwasher can be affected by what type of water area you live in. 

How hard can loading your dishwasher be? You put your dirty plates in, you take your clean plates out. Well there’s more to it than you may think. If you live in a hard water area, it is absolutely essential to use Rinse Aid and Dishwasher Salt for every wash, otherwise you will attract unwanted lime deposits. Without such aids in a hard water area, you could potentially cause damage to your dishwasher, an added inconvenience any family could do without!

One further aspect to take into consideration is the money-saving the modern dishwasher offers. Many people are of the opinion that hand-washing your dishes is an easier and less time-consuming process than using a dishwasher. However, this is an all too common misconception. In reality, the cost of managing a dishwasher is far less than what people imagine. For example, if a family of four was to hand-wash 18 dishes a week, they would be missing out on savings of up to £85 per year, a small but nonetheless significant saving simply made by using your dishwasher! Think of all the things you could buy with that amount of money! Not only are you saving money, you’re saving water resources as well. 

So, if your New Year’s resolution is to be more careful with your money, you need look no further than your dishwasher to start your money-saving. 


  1. I'd love a new dishwasher. Mine broke in September and we haven't been able to afford to get it replaced.

    1. Oh no! I honestly don't know what I'd do without mine :0(

  2. Sorry, but there is *no way* my family "bases its life" on anything at all to do with a dishwasher or other method of washing dishes.
