Other Washer Saving Tips

Here are some additional tips that can help you save money when using your washing machine:

  • Try store brand and cheaper brand name washing detergent and see how they work in your washing machine. Many of the low-cost washing detergents are high quality and will wash your clothes just as well as the pricier brands.
  • Before recycling the plastic bottles if you use liquid washing detergent, take out the plastic pour caps. many of these are made in such a way that you can get enough of the liquid detergent out for an extra couple of uses when the pouring cap is removed.
  • Using a “cold wash – cold rinse” cycle will make your clothes last longer. Hot water tends to shrink, fade and wear your clothes out quicker than warm or cold water.
