To maximize the energy you save while doing laundry, use cold water. By switching from hot to cold water for an average of three loads per week, you could save up to $27 per year on your energy bill. Unlike dishwashers, washing machines can wash with great results in cold water. In fact, most fabrics last longer and fade less when washed cold and hung to dry. Great for your clothes, and great for your wallet too! Check out www.bchydro.com/powersmart for more ways to save energy.
