Yesterday, I shared how much we can save by washing our laundry in cold water instead of hot. Today, I want to follow that up with an equally important savings tip. Only run full loads.
When you are doing laundry, make sure your load is always full. Don’t waste the water, energy or your time to run a small or even medium load when you can save by running a full load. It is more cost efficient to do a full load of laundry at once than two separate small loads.
The same can be said of your dishwasher. Make sure that your dishwasher is always full when you run it. If you are going to heat up the water to run your dishwasher, make the most of the space and fill it up.
Not only will running full loads save you money, but it will save you time. On this point, I think the time savings might be even more valuable than the money! What do you think?
