How to use the washer and dryer less times? And thus, save energy at home.

The organization is the basis of savings. It is a fundamental fact in any economy, by organizing ourselves we save time, money and effort.

We can arrange the way we use the washer and dryer this way.

  1. Make full loads
  2. Use hot water only when necessary
    1. The colored clothes do not need to be washed with hot water
    2. The whites can be washed with warm water, not hot
    3. You can leave soaking clothes for about 30 minutes
  3. Wash and dry your clothes at night, preferably after 9 PM
    1. It is not because the light is cheaper at night, it is simply because we use less energy at that time. In addition, it is convenient as it helps the air conditioning or heating in the respective season.
  4. If you can dry in the sun it is better.
    1. In addition to not using the dryer, whites get whiter.
  5. Update your equipment.
    1. Keep your washing and drying equipment clean. For example, if we do not keep the dryer’s lint filter clean, we may have some fire hazard and clothes won’t dry in the shortest time possible.
    2. I understand that a new washer and dryer is a great investment, but if it is worth it and the investment could be recovered in a few months and the life of these is of several years. https://www.energystar.gov/products/appliances
  6. Use the simplest washing and drying mode.
