Thaw Out Your Frozen Foods While Conserving Water
Are the ice caps thawing faster than your frozen skinless breasts?
Make no boneless legs about it, next time you thaw something from the freezer, stick it in the fridge the night before. Or, if you're crunched for time, immerse it in water or zap it in the microwave - either way, you'll cut(let) H2O waste from running them under the tap. Energy waste: Prepare to meat your match.
• (Drum)sticking it to water waste. Regular faucets use 3-5 gallons per minute, so thawing out that chicken breast can drain a tank fast.
• More money for giblets. You can save about $25 per year on your water bill by adopting this tip.
• Getting a leg up on energy waste. If you normally run your frozen foods under hot water, you'll save a little power and money on water heating by sticking them in the fridge or immersing them in H2O instead.
