Leftover water from boiling pasta or pulses can be used as stock for curries and soups.Else it can be used to dip in your greasy utensils. Later this water can be used to water  your plants.


Water used for steaming food and vegetables or for sterlizing baby utensils is as good as drinking water. Can be used for making tea, coffee or for multiple jobs in the kitchen.
