Water is evidently a precious natural resource. This resource is adequate for our needs and even so there is increased pollution and depletion of this resource. Hence, there is need to conserve the water that we currently have which can be done through recycling. Recycling water will help save environment and also preserve water stores. Water can be recycled at various places from the schools, to workplace, home and every other place.
WE LIVE IN A DISPOSABLE SOCIETY. IT’S EASIER TO THROW THINGS OUT THAN TO FIX THEM. WE EVEN GIVE IT A NAME – WE CALL IT RECYCLING.

Therefore, below are the 15 ways to recycle water at home.
1. Water and soap used for cleaning cars can be drained into the shrubs or lawns.
Normally soapy water does not hurt the shrub plants and lawn. Hence, when a person is washing their cars they can park the cars close to the lawns and shrubs. When washing the cars, the water flows down to the floors and it is in the process drained to the nearby plants or it is absorbed.
2. Instead of using a dishwasher to clean utensils, one can use a plastic tub of water.
The dishwashers whether fully loaded or not use a lot of water. Further, the rinsed water can be used to conduct a number of activities such as clean sinks, floors and toilets, water flower pots and houseplants among others.
There are times when this water has grease, in this case a few drops of lemon or lemon dish soap can be added to make it grease free. In other circumstances baby shampoo can be used to make it grease free. All in all, the water will be reused in other activities instead of being thrown out.
