Water is one of out the most precious resources we have and it is a crying shame that we pollute and waste it in the manner in which we do. Just because water is now available to us within a press of a tap, though, doesn't really mean we should let it go to waste. I know that sometimes saving water is hard work and I get lazy too, that's why I put those tips together and I hope I can change some of my habits and maybe inspire you to do the same.

#1 We all know this one - Turn the taps off when you brush your teeth, soap your hands, shampoo your hair, scrub your body, shave, etc.

#2 Fix Leaking pipes and faucets. Did you know that a leaking faucet can waste up to 1000 gallons a day?

#3 Take shorter showers - it will make a big difference for your water bill and not such a big difference to your hygiene.

#4 Use a bucket instead of a hose. It is slightly more work but it saves a significant amount of water. Last year in the UK they banned the hose due to a water saving plan by the government.

#5 When you drop an ice cube, put it in a plant, instead of the sink. It's the little things :)

#6 Collect the water that falls when you wash fruit and vegetables. You can use it to water the garden and plants, wash the patio, or soak your dirty dishes later on. According to Sydney lease cleaners you can use it for all sorts of cleaning purposes.

#7 While you wait for the hot water, put a bucket on the shower or bathtub floor and collect the cold water that falls. You can use it to wash your clothes later. Did you know that cold water is better for dark wash anyway?

#8 Use a bathtub divider if you have a toddler. You don't have to fill the entire bathtub in order to give the little fella a bath + it is convenient for you as you don't chase him around.

#9 Raise the blades of your lawn mower. Longer grass needs less water.

#10 Mulch Around Your Plants - it will help to hold water in the soil.

#11 When you boil eggs take them out and wait for the water to cool. You can use this water to water your plants. It will be rich in Calcium, because of the egg shells.
