Save soap and save power
by Shariffa Majdi
Two things you can do to help the environment are reduce the amount of laundry soap you use and wash almost exclusively with cold water. The lines inside the measuring cap are just suggestions and often you only need about half the suggested amount.
Try decreasing the amount of detergent you use a little each time until you figure out just how much is really needed to get your clothes clean. To save energy, wash almost all clothes (except when laundry is really soiled)in cold water. You will save energy, save money on you electric or gas bill and usually reduce fading too!
