Saving energy isn’t all about turning down your radiators and switching off the lights; it can be as simple as putting on a wash at 30° degrees. By washing at a lower temperature, you’ll cut electricity by around 40 per cent every time.
We recently teamed up with Scottish lifestyle blogger, Forever Yours Betty, to see just how easy washing at 30° can be. From cottons and wools, to delicates and dainties, she’s got washing nailed. She found that turning down the heat can extend the life of her precious threads, saving money (and energy) while doing it.
In the words of the style aficionado (and washing queen): “the key to doing your washing is to not only preserve the life of your clothes, but also lower the price of your electricity bills.”
