Install Aerators on Faucets

Posted on April 23, 2007 by Allie


Faucet aerators can save three to four gallons of water per minute of use.

According to

Aerators restrict the flow of water, compressing it into a higher-pressure discharge than regular faucets. They also introduce air bubbles into the water, making it feel like there is a larger water flow.

Pick up an aerator at your local hardware store, or order one, like theĀ Super Efficient Faucet Aerator 1.0gpm
online. Spending less than $5 can save you up to 50% on your water usage.

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
