Kitty knows there’s no need to keep the water running while brushing your teeth. Just wet your brush and rinse your mouth. Try using a glass or bottle to get in the habit.
Rinse your razor in a cup of warm water. Your razor will be clean, you’ll look good, and water will be saved. Genius.
Skip the lather, rinse and repeat and use a dry shampoo instead.
A four-minute shower uses approximately 20 to 40 gallons (75-150 L) of water. Who do you think you are, Poseidon? Take a sponge bath – or use baby wipes!
Don’t use running water to thaw food. To save water and keep food safe, defrost it in the fridge.
Food will be just as clean, and your water bill will look SOOO much sexier.
Reuse leftover water from cooked or steamed food to start a nutritious soup.
Running the garbage disposal wastes gallons of water. Dispose of organic scraps by putting them in a small compost bin under the sink.
If you have a fish tank, clean it and use the water you’ve drained on your plants. The water is rich in nitrogen and phosphorus. Water = saved. Fertilizer = free.
You just dropped that ice all over the floor. Typical. Don’t throw it down sink, drop it in a house plant instead.
