You may think that doing your laundry is like just another regular household work but you should know that almost eighty percent of the lifecycle of the clothes depend on the techniques of dying and washing them. Therefore, you should go for techniques that would help you to save your energy as well as the use of excess water. In average households, almost 135000 gallons of water is used up every year for laundry of 400 loads. By doing the laundry with energy efficient techniques, you can reduce the use of water to 6500 gallons in a year.
You will be able to save as much as 7000 gallons of water, which, for your information can be used for filling up as many as three swimming pools in your backyard or serve as a source of drinking water for a lifetime for as much as six people. Therefore, it is important that you switch to eco friendly techniques of laundry.
