Have you ever wondered if you’re conserving enough water in your household? While it may seem easy, most people forget about these daily activities during their busy schedules. Try these tips for conserving water within your home and strive to include them in your day-to-day activity!
Turn Off the Sink While You Brush
Most people brush their teeth twice a day daily; at least we hope they do. But while you’re brushing those pearly whites, you need not leave the water running! Why let the sink run endlessly? This is an effortless way to conserve water, and everyone in the family can do it too.
Shorten Your Showers
There’s no need to take a 45 minute or longer shower. Instead, try to limit yourself to a quick 10 to 15-minute scrub! If everyone in the household abides by this, you’ll limit your water usage significantly!
Fill Up Your Dishwasher
Make sure your dishwasher is filled before powering it on! Putting as many dishes as you can mean you need to run the machine less. But don’t just throw everything in blindly, make sure they’re appropriately placed. This way, the dishwasher will get to every dish, so you don’t have to do another wash!
Update Your Washer
Most washer machines use about 30 gallons of water per load. To lower this number in your household, look for washer machines that are energy efficient! Keep an eye out for companies, like Energy Star, that make environmentally friendly appliances.
Head to the Car Wash
Instead of using your outdoor hose to spray and wash your car down, try the car wash instead! You won’t waste any water from your home, and it’ll be a fun trip! Experience the thrill of traveling through all the bubbles and machinery.
