Save Lukewarm Water From Hot Water Tap

Instead of running the hot tap, while waiting for the water to get hot, and letting the water run down the sink, I keep a large jug by the sink and run the water into that.

Once I have washed up, I then take the jug of water outside to water my pots and window boxes. This not only saves water but also keeps my plants from drying out. Furthermore, if the dishwater in the bowl is not too dirty, I throw it over my runner bean plants (pictured below), or my roses when they are growing, as the soapy water discourages the blackfly and greenfly. :-)

Your beans are beautiful!.

I'm just wondering... If everyone practiced your method of saving warm tap water, how many billions of gallons wold that amount to in a year's time?

I do this also. In the winter I save it and put into the humidifier.
