At what temperature is it better to wash clothes

Repeated and frequent washing cycles cause clothes to become dull and lose color. This can be caused by improperly selected detergent, too-hard water, or the use of chemicals.

But, according to experts, most often things deteriorate because of an incorrectly set washing temperature. Read the OBOZREVATEL article to find out at what temperature you shouldn't wash your clothes.

There is an opinion that it is better to wash clothes in hot water. This way, grease and dirt will dissolve faster under the influence of high temperatures. The only thing that can be achieved by washing in too hot water is the effect of spoiled clothes.

So, when choosing the temperature on the washing machine, do not turn it too high. Experts say that only children's shirts or bedding should be washed at 90 degrees. Other things will simply deteriorate.

Therefore, it is optimal to wash clothes at a temperature of 30 degrees. This will save energy and will not affect the condition of the clothes.

By the way, the express mode is not suitable for all fabrics and makes washing more energy-intensive. The economy mode allows you to use less water and energy, although the washing takes longer. Water heating accounts for 90% of the washing machine's energy consumption. The drum spin uses very little energy in comparison. Washing at a lower temperature consumes up to 59% less energy, which can reduce electricity and water bills.

In addition, the currently popular bio-powders contain special enzymes that lose their effect at temperatures above 30 °C.
