Top Washing Machine Hacks

While laundry day might not be one of your most favorite days of the week, it still has to be done. Just keep reminding yourself how lucky you are to have a washer. There was a time, not too long ago, when you'd have to wash your clothes by hand with a washboard. You'd even have to heat the water yourself and maybe even make your own soap. Feel better, now? Probably not, huh? Well, here are a few tips to get the most out of your washing machine making your job a little easier.

Full Loads

Even though it has settings optimizing water efficiency for different sized loads, you'll want to wash full loads as much as possible. The washer will use less water than with several smaller loads and it will save you money on utilities.

Don't Overload The Washer

It has settings for different load sizes for reasons. Use them. If you stuff your washer too full, the clothes won't get clean and you get to do it all over again. Or worse, you could break your washer and have to call us for an appliance repair.

Water Temperature

Hot water costs more than cold water. You can even buy detergents that are more effective with cold water usage.

Regular Maintenance

A washing machine is another one of those investments that you want to last as long as possible. If something isn't working as it should get it taken care of before it develops into an even bigger problem.
