Water Saving Tips In the Kitchen

In the Kitchen
  • Run washing machines and dishwashers only with full loads to maximize efficiency.
  • Avoid using sink disposals for food scraps.  Composting food scraps is much more economical than using a garbage disposal.
  • Don’t rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, or use a pan of water in the sink and re-use the water as long as possible.
  • When washing dishes by hand, fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.
  • When washing dishes by hand, use the least amount of detergent possible.  This minimizes rinse water needed.
  • Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap for cold drinks.
  • Don't defrost frozen foods with running water.  Either plan ahead by placing frozen items in the refrigerator overnight or defrost them in the microwave.
  • Don't let the faucet run while you clean vegetables.  Rinse them in a filled sink or pan.
  • When buying new appliances, choose water-saving dishwashers and front-loading washing machines.
