2 Comments on Water-Conservation Suggestions
by Susan & Peter
1- Somebody suggested saving the water that runs when you're waiting for the hot water to come. We suggest to disconnect your hot water heater altogether! A bit of water heated in a tea kettle is plenty for washing dishes, sponge bathing, etc. Why waste fuel keeping a tank full of water hot all day & night?
2- Somebody suggested wrapping used tp in plastic rather than putting it down the toilet. We haven't put any tp in the toilet for years. Just wrap the #2 tp in clean tissue, no plastic required. #1 tp needs no wrapping at all. It won't stink in the trash can, probably because it dries before the bacteria can grow.
