Shampoo in the shower? Shut off the tap while lathering up

This is part of a weekly feature in Home & Garden, highlighting ways residents can save water.

▪  Stop the shower flow while shampooing your hair.

How much water can a few minutes waste while lathering up? Turn off the water while washing your hair and save up to 150 gallons a month. For a family of four, that adds up to 7,200 gallons a year.
