    I’ve never heard this until now but I was researching how to fix leaks in the bathroom and came upon a great tip: if you put food coloring in a toilet tank and see it seep into the bowl without flushing, you know there’s a leak there. I haven’t tried it yet but knowing how much leaks cost both my family and our environment, I’m definitely going to give it a go. Has anyone tried this?

    That’s actually a really smart idea to test for toilet leaks that I’d never even thought of. Going to have to try it out.

    Another way to test for bathroom leaks, specifically for faucets, is to get some color-changing leak test paper. From what I’ve seen, it’s pretty inexpensive and can tell you if you have a slow faucet leak that isn’t dripping fast enough to be easily noticeable. This way you can fix it before it becomes a worse leak.
