We need to wash our hands more often than usual these days. Not an ideal situation because the water supply is dwindling rapidly. It has also been the driest and sunniest April and May in Belgium since the 1800s! We need rain and are not getting any for two months now.
As a simple water saving solution, I have placed a bucket in the sink to catch some of our ‘hand washing’ water. This slightly soapy water is then re-use for mopping the floor (also a good way to cool down the house), or for watering the flower beds and veggie patch.
