Homes #TapChat laundry tips Once a week or only when you’re in the mood? How often do you load up the laundry? Laundry accounts for about 15% of water use in the home, with modern washing machines using around 50 litres of water per load. Yet, we’re probably running more loads then necessary. A typical load of laundry is usually much less than the maximum capacity of the model, so make sure to stuff in a couple of shirts with your next load. 1) Let it all hang out Hanging up your clothes right after you take them off is a good way to reduce the number of loads you have to do. Make a habit of separating clean clothes from worn once but fine to wear again clothing to avoid contamination. 2) Get fresh For a quick fix, use a clothes air freshener in-between washes. 3) Do full loads When you do use the washing machine, remember to always fill it full which means filling about 3/4 of the drum. This makes the most of the water and energy and uses less of it than doing two half loads. Be careful not to fill it too much more than this though so you can make sure your clothes clean properly. 4) Care Caring for your clothes makes them last longer and saves you money in the long run.
