PUB - The National Water Agency

As some of you may know, J and I moved into our new place earlier this February and we've been enjoying our little kitchen space a lot! We cook almost 4 times a week and this brings me to my next point, saving water in the kitchen - Our PUB bills will not only be smaller, we can also play a part in conserving this precious resource for future benefits.

One of the most effective methods of saving water in the kitchen is to avoid washing our dishes under a running tap. Instead, we soak & scrub all our used dishes in a large bucket/container filled with water. Before we do this we always scrap all the leftovers into a the bin to increase efficiency and reduce the risk of our sink getting choked in the long run. After scrubbing, we'll do a quick rinse with minimal water and its pretty much done!

 Rather than boiling our vegetables, we steam it! Many rice cookers these days have this option and you'll not only save water, the vegetables will be of greater nutritional value!

We usually rinse our rice 3-4 times before cooking and it is a waste to throw the water away so we usually collect it in a pail to water the plants or rinse the toilet.

Also refrain from thawing food under running water. Instead, let it defrost overnight in the refrigerator or if you don't have time, use the microwave to heat it up or even place it in a bowl of water and leave it to defrost.

Lastly, always make sure the tap is securely turned off to prevent unnecessary water wastage.
These water saving tips may seem insignificant to you but if everyone does the same, it'll add up to a whole lot so lets do what we can in conserving water and make our environment a better place!
