Use Water Wisely

We use a lot of water for drinking, cooking, and cleaning. How can we use water wisely?

Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth. Turn it on only for rinsing. Turn off the tap while your scrub your hands with soap, too.

Take a short shower instead of a bath. A shower uses less water.

Make sure you have a full load before using the dishwasher.

Do you want a glass of cold water? Do not let the tap run until the water is cold. Keep a bottle of water in the refrigerator. Then pour only as much water as you can drink.

Turn off the tap tightly after you use it. Small drips waste water.
