Only wash what's necessary 
Jeans, jackets, and sweaters are bulky items that don't get dirty as quickly as others, so a lot of water can be saved by wearing them several times before washing. Similarly, consider using your bath towels more than once before washing them. 
High-efficiency washers use just 20-66% of the water used by traditional washers. A $150 rebate is available to replace old washers with new efficient washers. For more information about the rebate or to apply, visit www.socalwatersmart.com.
