Laundry hacks to save you time & money

Category : Lifestyle

Laundry. It’s a task that no one likes to do. You separate the lights, whites and colours, then the delicates from the non-delicates and so on… ZZZ … It’s boring right!

However, it doesn’t have to be anymore. By choosing the right appliance for you and being a bit savvier, you can wave goodbye to all the usual laundry nonsense. Read on for some of our top laundry hacks, that’ll save you both time and money.

Choose a Washing Machine that has a Faster Spin Speed

Typically, washing machines will have spin speeds of between 1,000 and 1,600, measured in revolutions per minute.

However, did you know that a faster spin speed will mean that your washing will be dryer when the cycle ends? That means that you won’t have to hang it on the line or run it in the tumble dryer for as long.

You’ll find that the highest energy performance is A+++ rated, but A++ and A+ are just as good too.

Did you know that by investing in an energy-efficient machine and using the eco cycle, you could save up to 60% on your energy consumption?

Choose the Perfect Drum Size To Suit You

When we use the term ‘drum size’ we are referring to how big the inside of your washing machine is.

Typically, washing machines will come with capacities of between 5 and 13kg, yet don’t automatically go for the biggest size. The more unused space you leave in the drum will mean more energy and therefore money wasted with each wash.

So, for example, if it is only you washing a few pieces of clothing each week, then you will only require a 5kg washing machine. Whereas, a bigger family, who does lots of washing every week, will need around a 10kg capacity.

Keep Your Clothes Fluffy and Soft with a… Tennis Ball?

Believe it or not, putting two or three tennis balls in with your washing could, in fact, help fluff up your towels and bedsheets. This works, because the…
