To save energy when doing dishes, the Dish Squeegee™ is a simple, fast and eco-friendly tool. Simply squeegee off dirty dishes without pre-rinsing to save water and the energy used to heat water. The Dish Squeegee's unique and versatile three sided shape makes it well-suited for all size pots, pans, dishes, cups, and jars. It is made of 100% silicone, and is dishwasher safe.

Producing and heating water requires a large amount of energy, and about 8% of that hot water is used in our kitchens. According to the US EPA, pre-rinsing dishes prior to dishwasher use wastes water. Experts estimate that pre-rinsing dishes prior to putting them in the dishwasher can waste up to 6,500 gallons of hot water a year per household!
We estimate that using the Dish Squeegee™ to scrub dishes can save $200 a year by reducing the amount of hot water you use.
*Comparisons assume this product replaces a 2.5 GPM showerhead and that hot water costs $.03 per gallon.
We use this kitchen tool at the ClimateStore office. It drastically cuts the amount of hot water we need to clean our dishes and takes up barely any space near the sink.
