Am I Wasting Water?
If you stand far away from the device your reading this blog, squint your eyes and stare at the background of this week’s blog header, people will probably ask you a couple questions. That’s okay, tell them you’re crazy. But you’ll also notice a washing machine in the background. This week’s blog is all about ‘dem washing machines and how you you can save water. Let’s dive in! ….not actually dive in like in this news article.
1. Don’t Use As Much Water
Such a brilliant idea isn’t it? I know, I know, it sounds obvious, but if you’re doing just a small load, set the appropriate water amount. As well, newer washing machines are increasingly more efficient. Maybe it’s time you took the plunge? …once again, not a plunge into your washing machine. Just get rid of the old one, and purchase a new one!
How you get rid of the old one is your choice.
2. Don’t Overload Your Washing Machine
If you cram too much in there, the clothes won’t wash properly, and you may have to wash everything again. You may think you’re saving water at first, but if you’re having to wash twice, you’re wasting water, brutha. Batman, for instance, is waiting to wash his mask until the second load. Do as Batman does. Plus, too many clothes can damage the drum and decrease efficiency. Be a superhero washing machine user.
These two know what they’re doing.
3. Use A Cat To Check For Leaks
Cats are great for jumping into your washing machine to have a look around. If you don’t have a cat, you can do it yourself, but I’d consider getting one for this sole purpose. Check for leaky internal hoses, worn out fittings and pumps that could be decreasing your washing machine’s efficiency.
Round and round he goes. When he’ll stop, no one knows.
4. Check Your Detergent
If you have a high efficiency washing machine, make sure you are buying laundry detergent with the HE label on it. What’s the difference? Apparently, these laundry detergents are low on the suds and high on the less water usage meter. What are you waiting for? Go get some today!
I just like this. It’s not that relevant.
