Conserve Water In Your Bathroom
Turn it Off
This is one of the easiest ways to conserve water. When brushing teeth, shaving, or lathering with soap, turn off the tap! A couple seconds of a rushing tap adds up significantly over the course of just a week, not to mention months or years.
Also consider taking a streamlined shower. Showering, on average, uses 30-40 gallons per shower! Time your showers so that you can clean quickly without wasting water.
One drip a second from a leaky faucet equals about five gallons over the course of the week. Think of how much water you can save by taking the time to mend leaks in your sink.
Also check for a leaky toilet. How? Put red food coloring in your toilet tank. If it finds its way into the bowl, you’ve got a leak.
Because we are clean when we step out of the shower, the most that’s really getting on your towels is soap and water. Mildews can build up on damp towels, but not after one shower. Feel free to use towels two or three times before dumping them in the laundry – just remember to hang them up between uses to that they can properly dry.
Update the Toilet
Have a toilet older than 1992? It’s guzzling more water than necessary with every flush. Updating your toilet will save you expenses on your water bill in the long run.
Installing a water-preserving shower head or faucet in your sink can also help you save water and money.
