This one is a simple tip: turn off the water when you don't need it! This is especially important when brushing your teeth! There's absolutely NO use in letting the water run while you scrub your pearly whites! Only turn on the tap when you actually need it - it's that simple! Remember that fresh and clean drinking water is a finite resource and we really should value it!
