5 Ways Washing the Dishes Right Can Help You Cut Down on Your Water Bill

A little patience goes a long way, and you're going to thank yourself later when you see your next water bill:

 

1. Have one basin for washing and another for rinsing

Running water when washing and rinsing the dishes can take a toll on your water bill. Control the amount of water you use by filling one basin with wash water and the other with rinse water… and then sticking to it!

 

2. Soak dishes instead of letting the water run

Letting the water run while you scrape pots and pans clean, sometimes you don' realize how much water already went down the drain! Avoid the excess use of water by soaking pots and pans while you scrub away the sticky stuff.

 

3. Defrost your food in the refrigerator

We're all guilty of thawing our food by putting it under running water (we're looking at your tub of ice cream over there). But a more water efficient way of doing it is moving the frozen food from the freezer to the refrigerator and waiting for a few minutes for it to thaw.

 

4. Water house plants with rinse water from washing fruits and vegetables

You can wash your fruits and vegetables in a basin and afterwards use the same water for your house plants.

 

5. Use small amounts of detergent

Yes, those huge fluffy suds are almost too bubbly to resist but alas! It's one of the reasons we end up using more water than we need to! More suds mean more water needed to rinse them all off. The trick is use the amount specified in the instructions and then add more only when necessary.
