Changing your washing habits can lead to big savings on your energy bills. Opt for the eco cycle on your washing machine, and lower wash temperatures to 30°C wherever possible. Avoid using a tumble dryer and hang your washing up to dry using a line or clotheshorse instead. Making changes such as these can save up you to £28 per year on your energy bills.
