Tips on doing laundry
We’ve got a few tips for you to make the most of your laundry day.
Wash cold: Washing with cold water can reduce your energy consumption by up to 90%. Make sure you’re using a detergent that’s made for cold washes.
Pre-treat stains: Instead of letting stains sit on your clothes, use a pre-treated product or try one of these easy home remedies: soak the stain in white vinegar and then wash as normal; or rub some dish soap on it and let it sit for 30 minutes. You can also make your own at-home stain stick with equal parts hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and liquid dish soap (use 1 tablespoon of each ingredient). Just apply the mixture to stains after they happen and before you wash.
Use eco-friendly products: Not only are these products better for the environment, but they’re less likely to irritate your skin if you have sensitive skin.
