Many times, line drying is not possible. If you end up having to use a dryer, we advise you to toss in some dryer balls with your clothes. This way, your clothes will not clump together and that speeds the laundry process thereby reducing the overall energy consumed.
Besides, dryer balls tend to hit against the fibres, which leads to clothes feeling super soft. What’s better? Alongside speeding up the laundry process, it is also a reusable and cheaper alternative to fabric softeners and dryer sheets.
Choose Line Drying
Dryers use up a lot of energy to produce heat. Line drying is a much better alternative compared to dryers that consume tonnes of energy. This way, you can not only save energy but also preserve your clothes from shrinking and getting damaged. While the UV rays from the Sun are great at bleaching white linens, it is best to avoid drying bright coloured clothes in the sunlight as the sun rays can cause a lot of fading. Thus, we recommend you to line dry your clothes to ensure longevity.
Choose Front Load Washing Machines
It is best to choose a front load washing machine over a top load washing machine. This is because front load machines tend to save both energy and water compared to the machines that need to be loaded on the top. Besides being energy and resource-efficient, front load machines can be a worthwhile investment as they pack in a greater number of features to suit different kinds of fabric.
Make a wise choice and choose sustainable!
