I have a friend who washes her dishes by hand and then puts them in the diswasher, leaves the door open and air dries them. That way she doesn't need a dish rack and drainer and she can save on the electric bill. It's such a simple idea but it never occurred to me. If you don't want to hand wash, run your dishwasher when its full and not during peak hours.
