What do you do to keep clean in an eco-friendly way?

Shower instead of bath, at least some of the time?

Share baths or bathwater?

Re-use bathwater?

I take showers more than baths. Nothing else though.

This is more for survival than anything, but DS always showers for me. I can't trust him on his own and I much prefer getting a shower in the morning.

Nada here unfortunately. DH's skin requires soaking... and I wont even put my hands in dirty bath water, let alone bathe in it. And then he has to rinse in the shower.

But I'm not a daily shower person... so I guess that helps?

everything helps Ashley!

We dont have a shower, but my son and I often share baths, or we'll have quickie baths one after another if we're not especially dirty. We re-use bath and washing up water for watering plants in the summer when there's less rain.

DH says when we buy a house we're gutting the bathroom, installing a large tub and having it set up with a warmer. That way he can put as much water in as he needs, none will drain back out of the safety valve like it does now), and he can just warm it up with the warming system. We figure we could probably save between half a tub and a full tub full of water DAILY.

Example. From May 16th to August 21st we used 4737 gallons of water.

From May 16th to June 19th we were not in this apartment. From August 2nd to August 21st, we were not in this apartment.

so from June 19th to August 2nd, we used 4737 gallons of water. That's pretty much just washing dishes, flushing the toilet (which we do not do every time we go, just when we have to), and hygiene.

Our next bill will be the first ever that we were here for the entirety of the bill... I'm horribly frightened of what this will be!
