Some more ways to save 1) Check your shower head to see how many gallons per minute it puts out. Perhaps you can install a low-flow shower head to reduce your water useage. 2) Install an aerator on your kitchen sink to slow the hot water flow. This will help save water as well as electricity for your hot water tank. 3) Buy some reussable microfiber cloths for cleaning with instead of going through tons of paper towels 4) Have hard water stains you can't get rid of? Use some toothpaste and n old toothbrush to clean them off with. 5) Clean your toilet with denture tablets. Drop one or two into the toilet, wait a couple of hours and then scrub as usual with a toilet brush. Or, you can pour some white vinegar in, add a little baking soda and let sit for a couple of hours before scrubbing.

Well, yup we need to think of a lot ways so we could save. Those are good suggestions you have written. At home, instead of installing a low-flow shower head, sometimes we no longer use the shower. We just use a pail and 'tabo' (I don't know how it's called in English, but we use that term in Tagalog to get the water from the pail). In that way, we are saving more water than using the shower.
