MCKINNEY, TX — As much of Texas is still in drought status from last summer, with some areas listed as Exceptional Drought, a local writer put together a list of water-saving tips, according to Town Square Buzz.
The April 2 post entitled "Don't Pout the Drought" is made up of five ideas that include tips for home water usage, home cleaning, rain collection and some landscaping. Tip number two recommended the use of a professional carwash:
