Next to our refrigerators, the washing machine and dryers are the biggest energy users in our homes. They also tend to be the most problematic in terms of trying to stay eco-friendly. However, there are a few simple changes you can make to your laundry routine to ensure you save money and reduce your carbon footprint. First of all, every laundry load should be a full load. It might be tempting to throw a few things in to get them clean for the next day but if you can wait for a full load then do so. Some old models of washers can use up to 55 gallons per load whether that load is full or not.
If your clothes aren’t super dirty then you might want to wash in cold or warm water as opposed to hot water. Try pre-soaking your clothes in cold water for 60 minutes. Be sure to add a few tablespoons of baking soda to break up that dirt and grime before the real washing can begin. It’s also helpful to sort your laundry. This has more to do with the drying phase than the washing phase. Heavyweight articles like towels dry better when they are kept together. Speaking of towels, you really don’t have to wash them after every shower. You can go a few days before loading them up.
Dryers that are older also use up more energy. You can help by not running the dryer for longer periods of times. If possible, line dry items. Otherwise, keep checking the clothes and the minute they are dry take them out. On the new models of dryers, there are moisture detectors which automatically shut off the drying cycle the moment the clothes are dry.
Speaking of new models, it might be time to swap out your old washer and dryer for a pair of energy efficient models. You’ll definitely see an improvement in your electric bills! Before you can bring in those new models you need to clear the space in your laundry room. A washing machine and dryer is not something you can toss out on the curb with the rest of the trash. To get those machines disposed of the right way, you’ll need to call upon Junk King Bucks County. These are the junk removal experts in Bucks County, PA.
The Junk King crew who will show up at your home will bring the right equipment to remove the old washer and dryer. More importantly, they’ll also have the right size truck to haul it off. They can also take away all the rest of your bulky items in the same trip. Yes, it’s true: throwing away junk can save you money. Call Junk King Bucks and let them show you the way!
