What washing mode is the most economical: using less water and energy
Regular laundry uses a lot of electricity. Of course, if you have children in the family, you can't do without it. However, experts do not recommend using some modes on the washing machine. For example, the express mode is not suitable for all fabrics and makes washing more energy-intensive.
To get your clothes washed well, you need an optimal combination of three main components: time, water, and temperature. The Express edition figured out which washing mode is the most economical.
Eco mode of washing
Choosing an eco-program will reduce the use of electricity while providing the same cleaning results.
Shalika Honda, a Beko expert and marketing manager for the UK's best-selling large appliances, recommends setting your washing machine to this mode.
The economy mode uses less water and energy, although it takes longer to wash.
Water heating accounts for 90% of a washing machine's energy consumption. The drum rotation uses very little energy in comparison.
Washing at a lower temperature uses up to 59% less energy, which can reduce your electricity and water bills.
Manual settings for the washing machine
If you can't find an eco mode on your washing machine, try setting it yourself. It's very simple. Select a temperature of 30 °C.
"Good laundry detergents are effective at low temperatures nowadays, so there's no need to wash in hot water unless it's something like underwear or towels," said Paula Quazi, an eco-friendly cleaning expert.
In addition, the currently popular bio-powders contain special enzymes that lose their effect at temperatures above 30 °C.
And, of course, before washing, you should make sure that you have enough clothes to load the washing machine. There is no point in washing just a few things.
