yes as long as there is not too much washing up liquid in the water and no other substances.

No! In CA it's considered "gray water," and the soap and detergents in the water will eventually increase the salinity of the soil to a point where it can't support certain types of plants! We use water that we wash veggies and rice with, but definitely not dishwater.

the in trouble-free words difficulty will be any preservatives that you've washed into the water, notwithstanding in the experience that they are homestead grown then there'll be no issues. Steam keep in mind is a gasoline - the gaseous state of water, it would not carry some thing except water molecules, so, as long as there is sufficient area to avert splashing then there aren't any issues by any skill... notwithstanding in functional words, the quantity of water is such that it would in all likelihood do more beneficial solid to apply flushing the bathing room, create a gadget so the cistern of the bathing room would not fill vehicle magically and correctly up manually.

Yes as long as it doesn't have any bleach or harmful chemicals in it. My mother had the most beautiful roses in the world. Her secret was dish washing water. It washes the bugs off and helps make them stronger.

Yes it is possible and wise too. Also add some of the waste water you use into a spray and use this to spray roses and plants where aphids and greenfly gather. This will keep your plants healthy.

Dish water from the sink yes. The detergent won't hurt the plants & does kill off some insects.

yes if it is just soap or detergent in the water. My husband puts dish detergent in when he uses water soluble fertilizer saying it breaks up the suface tension (surfactant) on the soil so the plant can absorb the water better.

We have been doing it for years. I sometimes mix dishwashing liquid with water and spray the aphids on the roses with it and it seems to work . Never had any problems with using the water, we use our bathwater as well when there is a drought on.:)))

Yes, as long as you know what is in the water will not harm the plants or create a biohazard when it decomposes.

Yes. Last summer I watered all of mine with washing up water and bath water. Never seem such amazing tomatoes...
