Wash Laundry Using Cold Water and Line Dry Your Clothes

Using cold water to wash your laundry can save up to 90% of your energy costs per load.  That can save you $200 per year! Check out the “Laundry” section of our Buying Guide to learn about laundry detergents specially formulated to work well in cold water washes! Also consider using a space-saving, retractable clothesline to dry your clothes. Dryers help keep your clothes dry, but they are taking money right out of the pockets! There are no Energy Star dryers and there is way to use one more efficiently. As one of the largest users of household energy, they account for up to 12% of your monthly energy bill.
