I have a portable dishwasher, and just the other day, I had this idea of letting the sun dry the dishes instead of using the energy it takes for the dry cycle. I am turning the washer around so the sun that comes in through the window can dry them.
What a great idea. My dishwasher has a drying selection for either heat dry or nothing. I almost always choose nothing. No, not sure how much energy I'm really saving, but when I am home, I'll open the dishwasher door when the load is done. I figure a lot of the water will evaporate due to the heat from washing. Great idea on your part!
I watch for when the rinse cycle is done, open the door and let the moist air into the room, my kitchen plants love it! I don't water so much now. As to power saving, I noticed my electric bill isn't as much since I been doing this.
