Here are our top tips for saving water when washing your laundry.

Here are our top tips for saving water when washing your laundry:

  • Try to use as many natural cleaning products and detergents as possible, these don’t contain any phosphates and don’t impact the environment negatively. There is a broad range of brands and products to choose from.
  • Remember to change the filter on your washing machine regularly
  • Most washing machines give you the option to choose load-sizes. Try to pick the right option to save water and energy with each load of laundry, or wait until you have a full load to start washing.  
  • When buying a new washing machine, compare models based on water and energy efficiency.
  • When buying a new washing machine, consider buying a front-loading machine. The technology uses water more efficiently and keeps your clothes just as clean.
  • Try to re-route your laundry water to the garden instead of to the sewer, this way you can keep your plants happy without using extra water.
