Since our water bill keeps going up and up and up, I keep finding ways to use less and less. When I empty the dehumidifier, I empty the water into a bucket and then I use the water to water my flowers or my garden outside. When I boil water to cook something, I save the water when I’m done, let it cool, and water plants with that too. – Laura
Great tips, Laura. Here are a few of the things my family and I do.
- Take quick showers instead of baths.
- Use bathwater to water plants (provided you didn’t add anything that could hurt them).
- Turn the water off while you brush your teeth, wash in the shower etc.
- Check for leaky faucets and toilets and fix them.
- Don’t run the washer or dish washer unless it’s full.
- Wash all dishes in one sink full of hot soapy water, starting with the cleanest and ending with the most greasy stuff (like pots and pans).
