Water Drop - Save You Some Water!Maybe you want to cut down on your water use for environmental reasons. Maybe you want to save some money on your water bill. Either way, here are three simple ways to save water in your bathroom (and save money on your water bill).

Navy Shower

Navy showers are a great way to save on your water use. What is a navy shower, you may ask? I may answer that it’s a shower where you turn on the water, get yourself all wet, then turn the water off. You then soap yourself up, scrub some shampoo into your luscious hair, and then turn on the water just enough to rinse yourself off. This uses a lot less water than a bath (average water use for a bath is 35 gallons!), and also a lot less than a normal shower (2-minute navy shower uses about 4 gallons, while a 10-minute shower uses about 20!). So go ahead and try a navy shower today.

Bottle in Your Toilet

Fill up a 2-liter bottle (or 3-liter, if it fits) with water or sand and put it in your toilet’s water tank. Each toilet flush can use about 3 gallons of water, but by using the bottle method you can cut that down by a little less than a gallon. Also, don’t go flush-crazy — about 40 percent of the water used in an average U.S. house went down the toilet.

Turn off the water when you brush your teeth

This one is simple. The average person brushes their teeth for 90 seconds, and the average faucet puts out 2 gallons a minute. So turning off the water when you brush your teeth can save almost 3 gallons of water.

There you have it. Three simple ways to save a lot of water in your bathroom. Try them out today, and if you’re not fully satisfied, we will issue a full refund. Thank you for your time.

    財布のコピー 時間を発表しますとても長くてとても長い前、人類はすべて更に赤く双足は歩いています。1人の国王はある辺鄙で遠い田舎の旅行に着いて、路面がでこぼこなため、とても多くてばらばらな石があって、刺すのは彼の足を得ます痛くてしびれます。王宮に帰った後に、彼はおりていっしょに命令して、国内のすべての道はすべて一層のほらに敷きます。彼はこのようにすると思って、自分になって、また彼の人民に幸福をもたらすことができて、みんなを歩かせます時もう受けて痛い苦しみを刺しません。たとえしかし最も国内のすべての牛を殺しますとしても、十分な皮革をも調達しきれないで、費やした金銭、使用する人力、更にはかりしれません。まったくできないが、甚だしきに至ってはまたかなり愚かで、しかし国王の命令なため、みんなも頭を振ってため息をつくことしかできません。1人の聡明な召使いは大胆に国王に提案を出しています:「国王!どうしてあなたは大勢の人を動員して、そんなに多い牛に命を捧げて、そんなに多い金銭を費やしますか?あなたは何は両の小さいほらであなたの足をしっかり包むだけではありませんか?」国王が聞いたのはとても驚いて、しかしもすぐ悟って、そこですぐに命令を取り消して、この提案を新たに採用します。聞くところによると、これは「革靴」の由来です。世界を変えたくて、難しいです;自分を変えて、比較的容易です。全世界を変えるよりも、先に自分の–「自分の双足を包みます」を変えるほうがいいです。自分のいくつかの観念と方法を変えて、外来の侵略を防ぎ止めますで。自分で変えた後に、目の中の世界の自然はすぐ引き続き変えました。
