Save time and money on the never-ending laundry cycle

Save time and money on the never-ending laundry cycle

There are certain continuous noises that you associate with any family home. The sound of children – happy and sad, bored and excited; the chatter of the television as favorite DVDs are played again and again; and one other that any mom will be very familiar with – the constant churn of the clothes washer.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American family washes 400 loads of laundry a year – that’s more than one load a day and explains why that sound is all too familiar! From baby clothes and all their associated stains to muddy sports kits, it’s a constant battle that is costly in terms of time, money and the environment. Any work at home mom hates to see wastage in any of these areas so it’s great that there are ways to reduce the impact on all three.

Starting with the latter, modern Bosch washing machines and others from the big name makers, for example, are now far more energy efficient. Some models now calculate the exact amount of water required based on the weight of your load so that not a single drop more is used than necessary. Given that around 90% of a standard washer’s energy use is for heating the water, this is a welcome advance in technology.

Clearly, using less energy is better for the environment but it’s also better for your bottom line. Modern machines that save 30 to 40% on water use and 50% on energy use will save you hundreds of dollars on your utility bills over the life of the machine.

In terms of time (an important consideration for anyone trying to do the chores around work and childcare), some of the more modern washers offer 15-minute washes so that small loads are no longer as energy-wasteful as they once were. You also don’t have to wait in for an hour or so in order to deal with the laundry as soon as it’s stopped spinning. If you can force yourself into the yard to hang up the laundry once you’re done, all the better. Using the dryer is an expensive and energy-wasteful way of drying your clothes and should be avoided if at all possible.

For more information on being efficient when doing your laundry, check out the EPA’s guidance on how to save money and be greener at the same time.
