Use Water Wisely!

Use a bucket and sponge to wash the car, and if possible wash it on the lawn. Use the hose only for rinsing and turn it off between rinses. The water and detergent are  beneficial to the garden. Avoid washing the car in direct sunlight and dry it off with
a chamois to avoid unsightly watermarks.

With the sudden onset of very hot weather everyone should be particularly careful that they are drinking enough fluids. The Department of Health advise that we should be drinking at least 6 - 8 cups of water per day. Water is the best drink to avoid de-hydration.

Does your Garden hose run longer than needed because someone forgets to turn it off?. A timer on your garden tap can prevent this and save you water and money. It also makes it easier for someone to water your garden when you are on holidays.
