Washing up water and bath water can be safely used on lawns and established plants in beds and borders. However, avoid using them on vegetables and plants in containers. The water from dishwashers and washing machines contains a high concentration of salts and detergents so it is not recommended.
You can store rainwater for later use by collecting it in a water butt, this water can be used in the garden and for other outdoor jobs. Water butts are available from most DIY. stores.
