Clean WaterWater is natural to the earth, but sadly, so many people don’t know how to keep it pure. There are easy things you could do to keep water clean — here are some of them.

  1. Don’t turn your sink can into a trash can.

How many houses have you been to where a certain sink cannot be used because it’s full of trash? Oil, paint, chemical cleaners, and other supplies should be disposed of accordingly — not left in the sink. Not only is it unsanitary, it could be quite dangerous, too.

  1. Keep your toilet clean!

A lot of people are also tempted to throw tissue, tampons, sanitary napkins, and other hygiene products in the toilet bowl. What happens, then? Well, for one, the toilet gets clogged, a new clarifier drive is needed, and other times, it spurts out dirt, which isn’t what you want to experience. In short, you don’t have to be lazy — place a garbage bin in the bathroom, and throw your trash there! It would also be good to make sure that you clean the toilet regularly.

  1. Pick up after your pet.

If you have a pet dog, make sure that you pick up each time he makes droppings. This is because when animal — and even human — droppings are washed with rain water, they could increase the levels of germs and bacteria in the bodies of water around you — so you have to be mindful.

  1. Wash your car regularly.

If you cannot do it yourself, the local carwash is always there. What matters is that you maintain the good state of your car because the leaking of antifreeze, coolants, or oil are bad not only for the environment but also for you and the animals and people around you, too.

  1. Be mindful of dirty water.

Don’t be scared of calling the Waterkeeper Alliance or Clean Water Network to help you out!

Keeping water clean is not that hard. All you have to do is make sure that you take it to heart — and that you stay committed!
