5 Ways to Cut Your Household Costs - Laundry

by:GOWORLD     2020-09-05
In this age of austerity, it is common sense to look at ways to reduce our household expenditure and energy consumption. While doing the laundry is an essential chore, there is no reason it has to be more expensive than necessary. Here are five tried and tested ways to cut laundry costs.
Wash at lower temperatures
In the normal scheme of things, it's unnecessary to wash all items at high temperatures. Some people prefer to wash sheets and towels at 60 C, but most items of clothing can be washed at lower temperatures. Even if you wash at a warm temperature, you can use a cold rinse which will still significantly cut back on energy consumption. Experts advise that a 30 C cycle saves 40% more energy than a 40 C cycle. Be aware that washing at lower temperatures may not be as effective at stain removal, so using a cold water detergent is advisable.
Use cheaper detergents
There's no reason to use expensive branded products when according to several industry experts store branded detergents are just as effective. It's easy to become complacent when choosing products and go with what we've always used or known, but shopping around and comparing price per wash really does pay off when it comes to laundry detergents. So try a cheaper detergent and find yourself pleasantly surprised by the savings you could make.
Use less detergent
When comparing that price per wash, be aware that you don't need to use as much detergent as manufacturers' recommend! Blindly following instructions without questioning doesn't always pay off, and this is one excellent example. Manufacturers give us guidelines on how much detergent to use to sell more product, when in reality half the amount will clean as effectively. Not only does this save you money, but experts point out that using excessive amounts of detergent can actually damage your clothing causing the fibres to hold on to dirt.
Wash a full load
It may sound like common sense, but washing a full load each time instead of two half loads will make significant savings in energy and water consumption and therefore utility bills. Experts advise that a full load can use 25% to 50% less energy than two half loads. Be careful not to overload your washing machine however as this will prevent effective cleaning and could damage the machine.
Use an energy efficient washing machine
By law, all new laundry equipment must display a European Energy Label which gives information about the energy efficiency of the appliance. Ratings range from A+++ to G, with A+++ the most energy efficient and G the least. These labels also give more detailed information on the energy consumption per cycle, as well as information on load capacity, washing performance, spin drying performance and noise levels for both wash and spin cycles. It's well worth giving these labels consideration when buying a new appliance as they could end up saving you significant amounts of money over its lifetime, as well as cutting down on carbon dioxide emissions.
You may also want to look out for the European Ecolabel, a voluntary label that only the best laundry equipment meeting strict criteria can carry. These criteria include having better energy consumption than the European Energy Label rating A, water consumption of less than 12 litres per kilogram laundry, and noise levels of less than 56 decibels during washing and 76 decibels during spinning.
