DealDash Conserves More Water
Even though the summer is over many areas in the US are still suffering from a drought. It’s even more important now than ever that we all try to help conserve water.
There are so many ways that we can help conserve water. Here are a few of the more common ways, and also some unique and different ways that you can “think out of the box” to help save water.
This first way to conserve water might sound like common sense – but as we know, common sense isn’t all that common anymore! The tip is: Only water your lawn when it actually needs it! Most of my neighbors have automatic sprinklers that come on and off every single day, and before the current drought started, the lawns definitely didn’t need every day watering. And since the sprinklers are automatic, I have even seen the neighbors watering their lawn with the sprinklers when it was currently raining – now that’s a waste if I have ever seen one. You can tell if your lawn needs watering by simply stepping on it. If the grass springs back up immediately after you step on it, then it doesn’t need watering that day. By not watering your lawn every single day you can save hundreds of gallons of water per day.
If you like to wash your car at home instead of going to the automatic car wash, then here’s a tip for you: Be sure not to leave the hose on while you are washing the car. Fill up your bucket with soap and water, and then turn the hose off until you are ready to do a final rinse on the car. There’s no reason to leave the hose running while you are soaping up the car. This can save at least 100 gallons of water per car wash.
Similarly, if you are washing dishes by hand, make sure to turn the water off as you are soaping up and scrubbing your dishes. You definitely don’t need to let the water run while you are scrubbing. Just soap up all of the dishes first, and then rinse them all at one time. Also, if you have a dishwasher, you should be using that instead of washing the dishes by hand. It not only saves water, but it also gets the dishes cleaner because the dishwasher uses a much higher temperature of water than most people use when they are washing the dishes by hand.
Finally, if you shave your face using the sink, don’t run the water while you are shaving. Just put a few inches of water in the sink to rinse off your razor between passes. The water in the sink will rinse the shaving cream off of your razor just as well as a stream of water coming from the faucet.
