A few eco friendly laundry tips I use
With the prices going up in nearly all areas of our lives these days, it's always a good idea to conserve energy, and thus save money in everything we do. That includes doing the laundry.
I always clean out the lint trap after every single load I dry. Not to do so is just going to create more work for the machine and take more energy. It's also safer because there is more air circulation to prevent overheating of the dryer.
Something else I do is to use cold water at all times, unless something is particularly dirty. What I do is save all the really soiled items and do them in a separate load so I can just use hot water on the clothes that really need it to get clean.
Other clothes that are just worn on a daily basis will get just as clean using cold water, thus saving your money on your utility bill.
