#TMYK: Water-Saving Tips from NBCUniversal Stars
During the summer, we tend to use a lot of water—washing cars, playing in sprinklers, hydrating the lawn. But there are still ways to conserve water, even when the mercury is high.
In these The More You Know videos, NBCUniversal stars share their favorite ways to do so.
TODAY’s Hoda Kotb recommends cutting down on our shower time by listening to music:
Sunny Side Up’s Tim Kubart reminds us to turn off the tap when we’re brushing our teeth:
- Bathroom: Shower instead of bathing. Showers use on average 10 to 25 gallons of water, while a full bathtub can use up to 70 gallons.
- Kitchen: If you have the option, use your dishwasher instead of washing by hand, which could use up to 10 times more water. And only wash full loads of dishes in your dishwasher.
- Yard: Water your grass or garden in the morning when it’s still cool outside; at midday, more of the water will evaporate.
- Vehicle: Get your car washed professionally as opposed to doing it yourself. This could save up to 100 gallons of water.
