It's going to take longer to see

Over a month ago I decided to handwash all the dishes to see how much money we could save. I am happy to say I only resorted to using it 2-3 times. But 2 weeks ago we noticed our hot water heater was leaking. Not a lot, but enough that it needed attention. The plastic drain valve/spigot was cracked. A buddy of ours fixed it cheaply for us with a metal spigot, but we had to drain the tank for the repair. So it will take several more months to truly see how much water we have been saving. But the electric bill will show some savings.

It probably will save you money in water and electricity but you're also sacrificing time. It depends on what you value more. I remember doing dishes with my sister and later with my mom. It was always a good time talking and laughing together. None of us liked doing dishes but we did like the time we spent together.
