MIF/H/V By JUDITH SMOTI'SILordsburg WATER, WATER NOWHERE. Recent news is drought, pol- luted water and rising salty ocean. Out here I just used to plan for a short electrical outage for my well. You know a can of Stemo and some candles. With recent pollution news, how do I stock up with clean water? I imagine blue , . 55 gallon drums in the living ‘ room until the floor gives way. ,3. 8. Buckets are our friends! My free source is Albertsons bak- ery. Walrnart recycles theirs so no sharing. Bucket for carrying from point A to point B. Just going Camping, dd, f; : my house can get by with re- using stored water and just us- ing 1ess.....for a little while. It takes some planning and making a habit and probably remembering grandmothers’ tricks. She did not want to haul water any more than we do. Some advice from FEMA, Red Cross, WHO. During a full blown emergency each house- hold member and pet needs at least one gallon of water per day to survive. I say two gallons. No flushing, no baths, no laundry, no flower garden. Hydrate yourself, minimal cooking, wash utensils, and use paper plates and Dixie cups. At this point baby wipes are price— less! I buy off brand baby wipes at Saucedo’s #80 for a dollar. At home I divide into four zip lock bags and seal with 1A cup of hy- drogen peroxide. One in each truck and one in bathroom. Stored vinegar, bleach, Dawn dishwashing detergent (not soap), hydrogen peroxide are im- portant cleaners and inexpensive. Use washable rags not disappear- ing paper towels. If you are blessed with a well save your water table now. 1. don’t let water run while you brush your teeth 2. wash your hands with one baby wipe. 3. flush less. Up to 1993 a toilet used 3.5 gallons per flush. Now it’s 1.6 gallons. 4. Check for leaky faucets. 5. Average US household uses 70 gallons per person per day. 6. Use a plastic tub in your sink. Uses less than sink. Fill with only light detergent and soak dishes, utensils, dip your hands. Scrub vegetables in plastic tub with small amount of water. No wasteful running water. Now you have recycled gray water for rose bushes and trees. 7. Take short showers. Turn off while you lather. Bucket for picking in your garden. Bucket for catching shower water you don’t use to pour on plants. Pour old kitchen sink plas- “i :' “gig t It 3 3% in. »- September‘s m cam-1‘,» Lib/r: tic tub water into bucket with handle. Easier to carry to flow- ers/garden. Put out buckets when rain is forecast. A good 01 50’ hose stretched out on west desk gives your washing ma- chine at least warm water for .. . free. If you can use washer soak ; cycle, so much the better. W Refrigerate drinking water so it is nice and cold. “g If you are on city water, buy Brita pitcher and filter. Refill your filtered 16 oz. plastic bottles and refreeze for trips to groceries in Silver City. Also expensive Royal Berkley and only $20. For World Health Organization life straw. More next week.
