rtrV 1 To save water \aUH > / and energy, do full loads and set the washer to wash and rinse in cold water.

2 Hang clothes to dry! Even allowing clothes to dry partially on a clothesline cuts down on dryer time and saves energy.

3 Buy an Energy Star-rated washing machine-they use less energy and less water, and the spin cycle of newer machines spins more water out of clothes, which means they dry faster.

4 Use biodegradable laundry detergent, or no detergent at all; the agitation of the machine is sufficient to clean most loads.

5 Donate your clothes when you're done wearing them: Approximately 23.8 billion pounds of clothing and textiles end up in U.S. landfills each year.
