Here’s a recent question posed to Mr. Green:
Hey Mr. Green,
To conserve energy, I’ve asked my wife to never use the dishwasher to dry the dishes but she thinks that using the “heated dry” cycle protects us against germs and she surreptitiously overrides the air-dried settings.
I argue that like millions of healthy people before us, we always “air-dried” in the dish strainer before owning a dishwasher. Can you help clarify all the benefits to this recommended climate friendly practice?
