We question our washing habits for a more sustainable life.
We continue to share with you in short articles how we can protect our future starting from today, from alternative laundry solutions to water and energy savings.
Wash your clothes with yourself!Although washing clothes by hand may seem like a laborious task, it is possible to facilitate this process by incorporating it into daily routines. For example; When you enter the shower, you can take a few pieces of your clothes to be washed, throw a soap on the floor and use your feet instead of the machine drum. When you make it a part of your life, you will see that it is not as difficult as you think.
Prioritize class A machines for energy efficiency!Washing machines are one of the most energy-consuming machines at home. Moreover, if not chosen correctly, it consumes twice as much water per load. The first step is to turn to energy-saving machines; but there is much more we can do.
Except for oil-stained laundry, you can wash your other laundry at low temperatures. You can switch to detergents that work well with cold water. Rinsing with cold water will make your clothes just as clean as rinsing with hot water.
Run the machine at full capacity as much as possible and take care not to exceed the capacity. All this in order to save energy and water.
Hang dry!Tumble dryers are truly environmentally friendly devices. Not using these machines, which cause an average of half a ton of carbon dioxide emissions per year, is one of the biggest measures that can be taken against global warming. If you can't give up, you can reduce it. How?
You can throw machine-like clothes together. If you are going to dry two machines, you can throw away the other immediately after one is finished. In this way, you can save the energy that the machine will spend while reheating.
Don't forget to run it at full capacity, check the filters frequently, and hang your clothes to dry in fine weather.
Let it stay wrinkled!Ironing clothes consumes energy as well as time and can spoil the fabric.
It's best to hang the garments as they come out of the machine so that the creases are removed by gravity, or consider fabric options that will wrinkle less when purchasing new clothes.
There are laundries!Although the habit of using the laundry does not fit well with our culture, it is worth changing our habits for a sustainable life. You can take the first step by exploring the laundromats around you, and declare those who use environmentally friendly detergents as your favorite shopkeepers, because they deserve it.
