    collect water


    I'm searching for a word that means to collect water drops from the faucet.
    There might be more verbs .Please write out every word that comes to your mind.

    I wonder if 'tap off' can mean so..

    Re: collect water

    Hello Guest,

    I don't think "tap off" would work.

    I'm not sure there is a single verb. I would probably say e.g.

    1. collect the drips in a saucepan

    Best wishes,
