We always notice a dripping tap just when we are heading off to work or to a wedding or to shop! But a dripping tap can lose anywhere from six to 20 gallons of water per day! Sometimes we can’t just rush to the hardware store and bring back a new washer to fix the tap!

So till we can solve this problem, we can put a large bucket, a tub, or a bowl under the tap and save the precious water! Then we can use it to wash the underwear, or water the ivies and the begonias, or the greedy always hungry for water roses or fittonias or the polka dots, or just wash the vessels with it!
