Are you interested in cutting down on your water usage this summer? Not
only is it mandatory in some towns but also a great way to reduce your
water bill. Where I live we've had more than 12 days over 100 degrees
with little to no rain and are beginning to ration our water. So water
conservation is heavy on our minds. Some easy ways to conserve are to
make sure you water the grass or flowers either late at night or very
early in the morning. Doing so allows the ground to soak up the water
before the sun is able to dry it up - potentially burning the yard at
the same time.
Also consider taking advantage of the warmer weather by hanging your clothes
out to dry. Not only is this free of charge, you also get a nice outdoor
fresh smell to your clothes.
Having a big party? Consider using an ice block in your cooler instead
of ice cubes - they last much longer and keep items colder longer. Reusable
plastic ice cubes are available which can also prevent using bags of ice
when guests are over for a backyard barbeque.
What will you do this summer to conserve water?
Here's wishing you a world class day!
