Wash full loads
When doing laundry, adjust your settings. Match the water level to the size of the load, use cold water more often and use the shortest cycle for lightly soiled items. Also, conserve energy and water by making sure to wash only full loads.
Install a water-efficient clothes washer
Save 6,000 or more gallons of water per year with a Water Sense® washer. Conventional washers built before 2011 typically use 40 gallons of water per load, compared to an efficient model that may use as little as 15 gallons per load.
Check for leaks
Regularly check the washing machine and hoses for leaks.
Don’t wash as often
Whether at home or while staying in a hotel, reuse your towels. Some clothes may not need to be washed after every use.
