Three Easy Tips to Save Money on Your Shower Time


Quick and Cost-Effective Ideas

Many people have ditched baths in favor of money-saving showers. A recent study by Uswitch found that a third of us are opting for showers over baths. While showers are generally cheaper, there are still ways to make them even more cost-effective.

Tip 1: Sing to Save

Experts suggest aiming for a four-minute shower to reduce water costs and heating expenses. Yorkshire Water has even created a Spotify playlist of four-minute songs to help you stick to the time limit. Whether you jam out to Bon Jovi’s "Livin’ On A Prayer" or prefer S Club 7's "Reach," these tunes can make your short showers last more than two months. Find the playlist at yorkshirewater.com/your-water/save-water.

Tip 2: Switch Settings

Modern showers often come with fancy settings like massage or rainfall options, but these can lead to higher water bills. Instead, use the eco-friendly or water-saving mode on your shower for everyday use. By choosing this mode, you can reduce water flow without compromising the quality of your shower experience, ultimately saving on bills.

Tip 3: Soap Swaps

Consider switching from shower gel in plastic bottles to solid soap bars. Not only are soap bars a more eco-friendly option, but they also last much longer, helping you save money in the long run. You can also swap out your shampoos for solid bars. Boots currently offers discounts on Faith In Nature products, such as coconut soap bar and lavender and geranium shampoo bar.

Remember to turn off the shower while lathering to save even more money on water bills.
