A Gizmo Sometimes Helps!
by: Rona

It's true, most of us do not use grey water anything like enough. It's perfectly possible to re-use most of our household water, especially if we use non-toxic cleaning agents such as Ecover washing powder or Seventh Generation cleaners.

You can buy neat gizmos to help you save water, too. At the simplest, a syphon can help with re-using bath water for watering garden plants.

Many people can save a lot of water in daily life just by fitting a space-filler inside the toilet cistern. Save-a-flush "Hippos" and "Frogs" are common in England. Doubtless similar products are on sale in the USA and elsewhere.

Eco Tip for Screen Wash

by Howard

I don't bother buying expensive screen wash for my car. Instead I fill mine up with cold water and a good dash of vinegar and a squirt of fairy liquid - you'll soon figure out the ratios.

It works perfectly and hasn't caused me any problems so far!

Eco Screen Wash

I've done this, too and it works fine as long as you don't put too much washing up liquid in the mix.
