I have to admit that I am probably not the most perfect domestic goddess at Adessi but we all have to do the every day chores.
Doing the laundry is one of my least favourite but at least there are ways to be green while doing it!
By changing the little things we can make a big difference, for example did you know that by using full loads in washing machines can save up to 8.3 litres of water per household per day?
Other ways to be green when doing your washing are:
- Wash clothes at the lowest recommended temperature. By setting the temperature at 30°C instead of 60°C, you can save more than 60% of energy
- Using a concentrated fabric conditioner helps cut packaging by 60%
- Wash on a short cycle using less water and energy
- Use the correct doses for your washing load this will save unnecessary chemicals going into the environment
