11 Ways To Keep Your Shower Under 6 Minutes

Because long showers just aren't mainstream anymore. Kohler is encouraging everyone to reduce their water usage by taking shorter showers with their CommitToSix campaign. The Earth's thirst is real.

So, we all love showers. But studies show that a 10-minute shower could use up to 25 gallons of water, possibly even 50 gallons depending on your showerhead.

1. Stop using shower time for cry time.

2. Race the clock: Set a timer.

3. Or put on your favorite six-minute song or playlist.

4. Wash your hair. Or don't. You can skip some days if it saves you time. We won't tell.

5. Reserve your teeth-brushing for non-shower hours.

6. And try not to shave during your shower.

7. Watch scary movies with shower scenes until you are so scared of the shower, you only want to stay in there for six minutes or less.

8. OK, but seriously, try taking a "navy shower."

9. Or consider making your shower a cold one.

10. Stay in bed until you have only 15 minutes to get ready in the morning so you'll have to take a quick shower.

11. And of course, to be the most efficient, you can just never shower again.

Kohler is bringing showers to Bonnaroo this year. They're also launching a CommitToSix campaign, and if you pledge to take six-minute showers here, they'll donate $1 to The Nature Conservancy, in partnership with the Bonnaroo Works Fund.
