2. Laundry Machines
Doing laundry is our weekly routine. It’s at times annoying. Have you ever tried to add the cost of doing your laundry? Make the whole process less annoying and frustrating by saving a few bucks here and there. Here is what can be done:
1) Consider reducing the heat level. One of the leading electronics companies has recently reported that 90% of the power usage is heat that washing machines need to do laundry. They suggest users should try the cold setting to make the costs lower. Another great solution is to dry clothes outside rather than use the dryer.
2) Overpacking the dryer leads to increased costs. You take the clothes out when they are half dry and in most cases you’ll need to run the equipment again. Leave 25% of space and fill up the rest with items. The space is needed to let the fabrics expand and dry better.
3) Laundry should be done at night rather than day. You know that peak hours are more expensive. At night many power providers let people use electricity with discounts. If your family consists of several members, this tip is especially useful. Find out whether your company offers special deals for night hours.
