Grey Water Recycling on a Budget
It's also a good idea to clean the bucket periodically. Once a week with less than a teaspoon of bleach should do the trick.
Also covering the bucket when not in use will ensure mosquitoes can't breed, even if they do manage to find a way inside your home.
Have a magical day!
Update: We moved and our new place has a dishwasher. I don't recycle water much at all anymore, except maybe the rinse water, which I reuse in our tiny garden. I recycled once, maybe twice since we've lived here, when I felt compelled to wash dishes by hand; it is infrequent. I do, however, use the energy saving mode on our dishwasher, and I don't use heated drying, opting instead to open the dishwasher up when it's done and let it air dry. Usually that's not quite enough, especially for plastics, so I dry it with a towel before putting the dishes away.
Update 2: I don't really use the dishwasher anymore. I found it to be slower and more water intensive. Really, I find it only useful if there are too many dishes and too little time, but this too could probably be remedied. Perhaps watching less T.V.
