If you're not washing your laundry in cold water, you're missing out. You may be nervous about washing your laundry in cold water because you're not sure of the outcome. In fact, your whole life you've used warm water to wash your clothes. Well, this year will be the year of great change because washing your laundry in cold water is a smart move! Here are the perks of washing your laundry in cold water.
#1. You'll be saving the earth.
Believe it or not, but there is more that you can do to help save our earth. One of those tasks is by washing your laundry in cold water. In fact, there's an 80% reduction in energy use when using the quick & cold vs. normal cycles. Wow, those are some big numbers. Just think, the next time you're tempted to use hot water to wash your clothes, just know that you're going to be saving our earth by washing in cold water.
#2. Saving money on your energy
Just like you're saving the earth, you're also saving your budget. Washing your laundry in hot or warm water can increase your energy bill. When you wash your laundry in cold water, it doesn't cost as much. If you pay for water, you'll still be paying for cold water, but you won't be paying to heat up the water in your hot water heater. It will make a huge difference in your energy bill.
#3. Helps clothes last longer.
How many times has a piece of clothing had a stain and you washed it in warm water? When you wash your clothes with stains in cold water, you're avoiding a set in stain, which means you'll likely be throwing it out. Washing in cold water will ensure that the stain doesn't become set, which is great news for anyone doing laundry.

I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
