Reusing Cooking Water

Lillian Brummet

You can decrease dry air problems and make better use of your energy dollar in the cold seasons by reusing water.

Any cooking water (such as from steamed or boiled vegetables, roots or pasta) can be left out until it has completely cooled so that the heat and moisture are released back into the air. Before pulling the plug, consider leaving hot dishwater and bath water until it cools.


Why pay to heat up your sewer pipes?

When finished cooking veggies, if you're not going to use the veggie broth right away or keep for a later use. Let it cool and divide it up for all your houseplants. They'll love you for it!
