Wash Laundry In Cold Water

Wash all your laundry using cold water. There are some great detergents now on the market especially made for cold water. Also, at the beginning of the rinse cycle ,put in half a cup of a water softener such as Calgon or Borax. This makes the detergent work even better and eliminates the need for fabric softener. You will see the difference in your clothing and also your electric bill!

A washing machine repair man told my DIL that washing all the time with cold water is not good for the machine. It can clog it up with soap powder. Apparently even specific cold water detergents doesn't eliminate this problem. I am not really sure if this is correct, just passing it on.

Washing in cold water is fine but you are dumping chemicals into the water by using commercial detergents. Make your own natural detergent. It cleans as well if not better. To combat buildup in your washer, add vinegar 1/2 cup every few loads. Can also be used as a fabric softener.
