Everybody on Earth needs clean water. Water is used for multiple things such as cleaning the house, bathing, and drinking. It has never occurred to students that the chemicals used to clean the apartments around cleaning check time are not safe for water.
Water is a precious resource that Ephraim is blessed to have. Living in Sanpete County, there are farmers all around and all of them are planting crops now and trying to find ways for crops to grow. Water is the only source of this growth, and while, right now, Ephraim may have enough water for these farmers, if the community is not careful, water can become scarce.
One of the most immediate ways students can help conserve water is to control what goes into it. Cleaning the apartment can be a daunting task; however, if it is done with the right products the water can remain clean and uncontaminated as well.
A common household product such a baking soda or vinegar can be used to clean the toilet instead of a chemical bleach. Students can save money and use things already in the apartment instead of going out and buying cleaning products. Cleaning the house with things like vinegar, lemons, baking soda, and Green Works products can leave a house smelling better and the water clean.
As these last few weeks of school wind down, remember to clean with common products at the apartment. A product does not have to have chemicals added to it to make it a good cleaner; lemons work just fine.
