Here at Rosedale Service, we’re all about helping our customers getting the best out of their home appliances in an ecofriendly way, and people worldwide are awakening to the importance of saving our environment. We often hear that saving our planet is done one small step at a time. Today, our appliance service company in Chadds Ford would like to provide you with a couple of tricks to limit your impact on the environment when doing laundry.


Choosing the right soap


There are many green soaps available out there, so it’s only a matter of taste. They perform just as well as standard soap and can sometimes even be found at a cheaper price! Get the best of both worlds by purchasing a good-value soap that won’t have a negative impact on the environment and will leave a nice smell on your clothes.


Using cold water


Most clothes are just fine with being washed in cold water, whether you go for the normal cycle or the delicate cycle. A wash in cold water definitely requires less energy since the water does not have to be heated up. Washing your clothes in cold water also helps you save money on utility bills.


Giving your clothes a good spin


Most washing machine are equipped with a spin cycle. You should definitely make use of that feature, as it will make the clothes much easier to dry afterwards, and if your drying machine is equipped with a moisture sensor, you will save energy in your drying cycle as well.


Moreover, if you’ve had your washing machine for a long time, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to invest in a more environmentally friendly machine. Washers that load from the top have been proved to need a lot less energy and water. Combine that with high efficiency soap, and you’ve got yourself a green deal. You should also make sure that the model you purchase is labelled with the Energy Star logo.
