Today he's looking at laundry. How you clean your clothes has a big impact on the world, not to mention your energy bills.
So Hector will now tell you how you can makelaundry-time green in just TEN WORDS!
Should I wash clothes in cold water whenever possible?
Is line-drying better than tumble-drying?
Is it better if I use detergents that are earth-friendly because that water ends up in local rivers?
Are roll-on stain removers better than ones in spray bottles because they use less stuff?
Is it better to do one full load than two half loads?
Should I only wash clothes when they're dirty?
Should I keep the lint trap and vents clear to make sure the drier is working well?
Was that last one Yes?
Count how many baskets of laundry your family does in a week, then think of ways to save energy. Wash less often? Use cold water?
