Kitchen Tips

In The Kitchen

  • Rinse dishes, vegetables, and fruits in a filled basin, rather than under running water. Water your plants with leftover rinse-water. (Plants also love fish tank water!)
  • Wash only full loads in the dishwasher. Use the light wash setting when possible.
  • Install a faucet aerator on the kitchen faucet. Available at the hardware store.
  • Keep a jug of chilled water in the refrigerator for drinking. It tastes better this way, too!
