Tips For Going Green

OK, here's mine. It's my shower routine. I'm not sure exactly how much water I use, but, during the winters we live on a sailboat and have limited fresh water. Our solar shower bag (on the boat) holds 4 gallons of water for both of us to shower.

In the summers we live on a small island with limited water and a 3 gallon hot water tank.

Also, I don't use a low flow showerhead because I'm naturally limited by the amount of hot water available.

I have long hair and sometimes, to save more water, I use a leave-in conditioner and skip the second rinse.

Here's the deluxe version.

  • Stand under warm spray soaking hair, body and wash rag (or whatever you use). About 15 seconds.
  • Turn water to a trickle and shampoo hair and completely soap body with wash rag and shampoo.
  • Squeeze shampoo out of hair.
  • Turn water on and completely rinse hair and body.
  • Turn water to a trickle and apply conditioner to hair.
  • Apply conditioner to shaving areas and shave (conditioner makes the best shaving cream).
  • Use trickle to rinse razor.
  • Pumice feet.
  • Turn water on and rinse thoroughly.
