How To Use RO Waste Water?

 Water wastage is a cardinal sin. If you own an RO, you too are contributing to water wastage unintentionally unless you take steps to save water, which is a scarce resource. I have been using RO waste water for: washing clothes watering plants mopping floors But keeping a bucket ready and carrying it to the washroom, balcony, and terrace was a hassle.

The healthier ones are also sweeter than the one treated with sulphur.
