Learn how to help the Water Family cut down on water usage.

16 WAYS TO CONSERVE WATER IN THE KITCHEN

#1 - There are a number of ways to save water, and they all start with you.
#2 - When washing dishes by hand, don’t let the water run. Fill one basin with wash water and the other with rinse water.
#3 - Dishwashers typically use less water than washing dishes by hand. Now, Energy Star dishwashers save even more water and energy.
#4 - If your dishwasher is new, cut back on rinsing. Newer models clean more thoroughly than older ones.
#5 - Designate one glass for your drinking water each day, or refill a water bottle. This will cut down on the number of glasses to wash.
#6 - Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean.
#7 - Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Instead, compost vegetable food waste and save gallons every time.
#8 - Wash your fruits and vegetables in a pan of water instead of running water from the tap.
#9 - Don’t use running water to thaw food. For water efficiency and food safety, defrost food in the refrigerator.
#10 - Install an instant water heater near your kitchen sink so you don’t have to run the water while it heats up. This also reduces energy costs.
#11 - Keep a pitcher of drinking water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap. This way, every drop goes down you and not the drain.
#12 - Reuse leftover water from cooked or steamed foods to start a nutritious soup, it’s one more way to get eight glasses of water a day.
#13 - Cook food in as little water as possible. This also helps it retain more nutrients.
#14 - Select the proper pan size for cooking. Large pans may require more cooking water than necessary.
#15 - If you accidentally drop ice cubes, don’t throw them in the sink. Drop them in a house plant instead.
#16 - Collect the water you use while rinsing fruit and vegetables. Use it to water house plants.
