Below are some unique and free way by that you can reduce the usage of water in your daily life.
1. Use separate Tumbler to reduce water usage
Shaving and Brushing are our one of essential activities which we do frequently or every day.
Generally, we do shave and brushing near to our wash basin, as it is very near to the water tap and we can easily turn the water tap ON / Off as per our requirement.
Here, we need to change the method only, and we can reduce the water usage.
Sometimes, we forget to turn the water tap off, when we apply shave on our face or toothpaste on our teeth, at this time we do not need any water but the water keeps flowing from the water tap.
Just use a tumbler or any other pot which we you need to fill up with the water before shaving or brushing.
with this method you can just keep the water tap off when its not needed and you are going to use the water amount which is required exactly and you can reduce your water usage.
