Turn Off the Faucet When Brushing Teeth


At first, we were a little confused about why Michael Phelps was making dental health recommendations, and then we read the article and wholeheartedly agree. Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth!

"According to current estimates, 42% of Americans claim to leave the faucet running while brushing their teeth. Together, if we can make a simple change in our behavior like turning off the faucet while we brush, we can help save up to four gallons of water. That's the same as 64 glasses of water every time we brush for two minutes!"
