Save Money, Save Water!

This Sparked Me!

When the yard needs some water and the car needs a bath I combine the two by pulling the car onto the yard and give it a good water cleanse. I found you really don't need soap, just elbow grease, to clean the car and it really helps the yard. I feel soon water will be a very important commodity so why waste it at a car wash?

    good thought to save money and on H20 but are you aware that soap suds deter mosquitoes? YES ! They mostly lay dormant in the grass during the day and when your soap from the car lands on them it paralyzes their flying. So for nearly 6-8 hours the little buggers can't terrorize your guest if you are planning a outdoor get together. I do this every year. It does not kill other bugs but deter them from the area.
