    Even if i have to use 1 gallon water to clean the peanut butter jar, isn't it still better than leaving the jar to go in the landfill and waiting for 500 years for it to decompose? That 1 gallon water will anyway reach the earth and will become ground water and get naturally recycled, right?

      I'm no expert, but like you said, water ends up reaching the earth in the end. Whether you accidentally leave the sprinklers on too long, or the water goes down the drain, it ends up becoming ground water eventually. Especially now that coastal municipalities can no longer pump their waste water out into the ocean, it has to be filtered, treated and pumped back inland. A recent meeting with our Town and the city that provides our water & sewer services informed us of that at a meeting when some people were complaining about how high our water & sewer bill had become.

    I use Dawn dishwashing liquid and hot water. I let it soak for a while and then shake it up. If it still bubbles the bottle is probably clean. If it no longer has bubbles, then the bottle is not clean, and I repeat. When I do get suds I pour them into the container we soak flatware in, so it's not wasted.
