With an increasing number of drought predictions for the summer, it’s important to practice strategies for water conservation in your home. If drought is not a problem in your area, but you’re looking for a quick, easy way to save water, check out these easy tips!
Scrape, don’t rinse. Most modern dishwashers don’t require a huge amount of pre-rinsing to wash your dishes clean. Also, it means less work for you!
If you do have to scrub your pots or pans, don’t leave the water running. Just let them soak for a bit, then quickly clean them and rinse. Ultimately, it’s usually better to use the dishwasher rather than hand-washing your dishes, because using the dishwasher generally uses less water than washing your dishes by hand.
These two little tips can go a long way towards saving water! Do you have any quick tips to share? Comment below!
