We Have Water

So Cape Town is quickly running out of water. Luckily In the Vine Country Manor and Spa has a borehole with perfectly drinkable water. Now I know level 6B has been implemented and that means 50 liters of water per person per day. Here are a few guidelines to be mindful of when visiting our beautiful part of the world.

Stock up on baby wipes

Use dry shampoos (coco powder alternative for dark hair / corn starch for blondes)

Make a solution of vinegar water / stay soft water to spray clothes and hang to air dry

Hand sanitizer and hand cream

Using a combination of Vinegar and Bicarbonate of Soda as cleaning agent won't destroy water for grey use - please have a look at what ratios to use as the combination may bleach your goods

When using the toilet please use the "if it's yellow let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down" motto

Now to avoid clogging the toilet dispose of toilet paper in lined bins instead of the toilet bowl

Put baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) in your bin liner to absorb any odors

Pour Vinegar in the toilet bowl for odors


Lets do our part to save water where we can.
