5 Great Tips On Being More Green This Year
4. Wash Your Laundry Less And Use Cold Water
Only kids stain their clothes often, adults tend to be more careful with their garments. By washing your clothes less, you are not only saving water, but also increasing the lifetime of your clothes. Minor odor can be handled by hanging them out to the fresh air and using a clothing spray like The Laundress. You can even select your laundry by using 2 or more baskets and keeping one for clothes that you wore on a sweaty day and need more urgent washing. Use cold water to wash clothes that are more delicate and require extra care. Also using cold water saves up to 80-90% of the energy used during washing that is needed to warm the water.
