Hey, a couple of these tips are straight from the manufacturer of our new washing machine. Speaking of that, in addition to saving money and energy with these tips, if you have any appliance that’s more than about 10 years old, you’re wasting energy and money as compared to the newest energy efficient models.

Consider getting a new refrigerator, washer, dryer or dishwasher. And if you want to save 10%, I can send you a Lowe’s coupon. Just email me to let me know you’d like to get a coupon and save 10%.

1. Save $100 a year by reducing the amount of detergent you use.
Surprise! Laundry detergent may help remove stains and scent your clothes, but it’s not the main reason they get clean. The actual cleaning is done by your washer’s agitator and by the clothes rubbing against each other, which loosens dirt. That’s why experts say you can use half the detergent and still get fresh, clean clothes.

2.Save $40+ a year by using cool or cold water.
It’s a fact: Warm water doesn’t make clothes any cleaner than cool water. But there is a big difference when it comes to our energy bill—around 90% of the energy used by your washer goes to heat the water! Skip the heat, and you’ll snag cool savings.

3. Save $30 or more a year with full loads.

The average home uses 3,400 fewer gallons of water a year when they wash full loads instead of smaller ones, says the U.S. Department of Energy.

4.Save $40+ each year just by cleaning the lint.
Cleaning the lint trap after every use reduces your electric bill by cutting 15 minutes off your dryer time! This improves air circulation so your clothes are exposed to more heat, making them dry faster.
