Learn how to save cents on every load of laundry you do.
With great change comes great savings, and we aren’t talking about those stray coins we find in pants pockets.
Baby Its Cold: Unless your items really need hot water, wash them in cold water and save more than $250 a year on average, according to blogger, Mr Electricity. To keep up the cleaning power, choose an all temperature or cold water detergent. (By the way, here is why you should never wash sheets in hot water),
No More Please, I’m Full: Make it a rule to only wash full loads, and you’ll save on water, energy costs and laundry detergent. On the other hand, overstuffing your washer may lead to less than clean clothes that have to be rewashed more often.
Tiny Bubbles: Check the hardness of your water. It could affect how your laundry detergent and your washing machine perform, leading you to mistakenly add more detergent or wash more often.
You Turn Me Inside Out: To prevent snags or pulls on sweaters or embellished clothing, turn these items inside out before you launder them. It may save money that would have been spent on replacing your clothing.
I Got a Hang Up: Hang your laundry or lay it flat to dry, and you can save some big cash each year. Appliances that heat use up a lot of energy, and dryers are some of the worst. There haven’t been many gains made with technology to cut down on this cost, so for each load you keep out of the dryer, you’ll save money.
