2. Keeping lower temperature
Using hot water consumes energy. Instead use cold or warm water. Save the use of hot water for clothes where only hot water could help its cleansing, like greasy stains; including the ones where bacteria tends to thrive, like linens. Also, heavily stained clothes could be washed in cooler temperatures, if soaked beforehand.

4. Drying

It is advisable to ditch drying clothes in washing machines and hang them up instead to save cost. If you opt to use the drying facility:

      1. Make sure not to add wet clothes to ones that are partially dried
      2. Separate your clothes to dry ones with similar types.
      3. Use the auto-dry setting, if possible, instead of a timer.
      4. And in no case over-dry the clothes.
