The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Carrie:
To save some money and also be a little healthier only put dishwasher soap into the prewash section. Your dishes will still get clean and instead they will, essentially, go through 2 rinse cycles which will wash away more of the chemicals in the dishwasher soap. And you'll use about 1/3 the amount of dishwasher soap!
