Use the bath water to give your outdoor plants a drink. They especially like Epsom salts, a time-honored fertilizer in England.
Use a large, gallon-sized pitcher of bath water to flush your toilet. Pouring it down fast creates a flush; sometimes you will want to do this twice. A tubful of water can constitute twenty or more flushes. It works great.
While running water to get it hot, fill pitchers, glasses, any empty vessels you have handy until the water gets hot enough to use, saving the cooler water for drinking later.Water doesn’t grow on trees!
