A lot of water is used in our kitchens. To cut consumption in this part of the home, try sticking to a few simple rules:
- Before washing dirty dishes, scrape off any food remnants.
- It is more economical to wash up using a bowl or in a sink with a plug. Even though the dishes still need to be rinsed, the amount of water consumed is considerably smaller than washing everything under a running tap.
- Drinking water should not be used for other purposes.
- You can use non-hazardous substances for washing up, such as mixtures of soda and mustard powder, which means that less water is needed for rinsing.
