Energy saving tips
Fill, but don’t overfill
Make the best use of every wash. But if you overfill then your dishes or clothes won’t get cleaned properly.
Turn your clothes washes down 30° or even 20°
Clothes with stains or marks don’t need a lot of heat. A lower temperature will work fine for freshening them up.
Soak stains before you wash
Soaking makes it more likely that stains will come out clean, preventing any additional washes.
