No pre-wash cycle
Modern washing machines don’t need it. No pre-wash cycle saves 15% energy.

Run washing machine only when it is full
If the washing machine is half full, use the half-load or economy setting.

Set the temperature low
Detergents are now so effective that clothes get clean at low temperatures.

Avoid using or use the tumble dryer less
Each drying cycle produces more than 3 kg (7 lbs) of carbon emissions.

Iron clothes in one batch
Iron out everything at once instead of each piece of laundry individually. Heating up the iron each time consumes more energy.
