Do laundry the smart way and save time and energy!

One of the most dreaded household chores is doing laundry. If you are conscious about your energy consumption, did you know there are numerous ways to save electricity and water through your laundry washing habits? These energy-saving laundry tips will help you wash and dry your clothes smarter.

Energy-Saving Laundry Tips: Saving You Money and Time

Run Full Loads

Your washer and dryer are designed to hold certain-sized loads. You’ll get the most out of your laundry machines if you run full loads rather than small loads. It can waste a lot of energy to wash only a couple clothing items many times than it is to do a full laundry load once every two weeks. Plus, the less often you wash your clothes, the longer they will last.

Use Cool-to-Cold Water

Cool and cold water is safe for washing natural fiber clothing like wool sweaters. Washing them in hot water will shrink them! You’ll also save energy by using less hot water; you don’t have to use as much energy with cold water!

Buy “Green” Laundry Detergents

Environmentally-safe laundry detergents are ones that are deemed okay if leaked into the natural soil and waterways. There is no consensus about which type is “greener,” but what matters most is that the detergent is cleaning your laundry well.

Hang-Dry Your Clothes

You can also save money and energy by hang-drying your clothes instead of putting them through the dryer. If you don’t want to give up the dryer entirely, given the speedy drying it provides, you can save more delicate items like blouses for the drying rack.

Use Wash and Dry Cycles to Your Advantage

Washers and dryers have different settings, so you can do your laundry as efficiently as possible. Take some time to get to know your laundry machine settings so you can program your wash and dry cycles for a precise, energy-saving laundry routine.

Clean the Dryer Lint Trap

Maintenance is also an important factor in the energy-saving laundry tips equation. One of the most fundamental ways to save energy when using the clothes dryer is to clean the dryer lint trap. Check that it is clean before you do a load, and wipe out the lint after you’re done.

Clean the Machines

Lint can build up on the laundry machines’ doors and door windows, too. Wiping them down will help keep your machines running like new. You should also periodically deep-clean your washer with an empty barrel and white vinegar solution detergent.

When a problem arises, don’t just toss it out. Repair your machine and save a lot with Landers Appliance in the Baltimore area!
