From Ed's Forum: Dishwashing Dilemma


curryz:

On one episode, Ed mentioned that using the dishwasher rather than washing the dishes in the sink was better for two reasons. First, the energy used came from his solar panel and second, the dishwasher uses less water than what a human being would use. Sounds right.

On the episode where he and his lovely wife were replacing the counter top in their kitchen, his wife is shown washing the dishes in the bathroom sink and she said, if I'm not mistaken, washing the dishes in the sink uses less water. Was she mistaken? Did I just get it wrong?

Wow, people really pay attention to TV shows. Has Ed been caught? Does he have an answer for this? Is there a dishwasher/sink conspiracy?

No, but you can read Ed's response here.
