Up to a few years ago, I would run water directly from the tap into a pot and boil it without a second thought. I’d always boil far more than I needed, but that’s what I’d always been doing.

One day, it dawned on me that what I was doing was wasteful and inefficient. I tried an experiment with an instant dish that called for 300ml of water. I measured 300ml and put it in a pot. While I was boiling the water, I got the dish ready to receive the water. I was shocked at how fast the water boiled on my gas range! Ever since then I’ve made it a habit to measure water before boiling it and it’s saved a lot of water and gas.

Try it and you’ll probably get as hooked as I am on measuring water before boiling it.

お湯の無駄使い防止:測る

数年前まで、お湯を沸かす度に蛇口からポットに適当な量を入れていた。必ず湯が余った。

ある日、やっていることが効率悪く、水源を無駄にしていると気付いた。そこで300mlのお湯が必要としたインスタント食品で実験した。300mlを測って、その分だけを沸かした。沸かしている間に食品のラップなどを取り除いて準備した。お湯が沸く速さに驚きました!それ以来、沸かす前に水を測るようにしている。かなりの水とガスの節約ができたと思う。

試してみると驚くと思う…
