greenvert could use some tips:

I live with three housemates and no dishwasher, and we go through a lot of dishes. I'm looking for ways to cut down water usage while doing dishes. I try not to keep the sink running the whole time, but then I end up piling clean soapy dishes back with the dirty ones before they're dry. What's the best way to keep water usage down?

Have any ideas? Want to cut down your own water usage? Post here.
