The kitchen is the area in the home where we use around 10% of the total household water for cooking, cleaning, washing, and drinking. Of all water used in the home, about 15-20% is used on the laundry, and worst of all, our bathroom habits use nearly 40%!

It is, however, easy to conserve water in the home by making a few simple changes to your daily routines. Just follow the tips below and make changes in your home today.

  1. Take short showers, instead of bathing
  2. Use your water meter to check for hidden water leaks
  3. Install water-saving shower heads and aerators
  4. Reduce the amount of water flushed down the toilet
  5. Ensure your washing machine and dishwasher are washing full loads only

  7. Rinse your razor in the sink
