If you’re looking for ways to reduce your environmental footprint as well as save a little money on your utility bills, then consider making your laundry room both cleaner and greener. The following are a few tips for a green designed laundry room:

  • Use an energy efficient washing machine – Upgrade your old washing machine with a new model that’s been approved by Energy Star. An Energy Star rated washing machine uses half as much water as well as 30 percent less energy than non-rated washing machines.
  • Use a drying rack – Instead of drying clothing in your drying machine, hang them up on a drying rack to cut down on the energy you would have to use otherwise.
  • Use cold water – Instead of washing your clothes on hot water settings, use cold water. Around 90 percent of the energy used in a washing machine is to heat up the water and cold water will work just as effectively.
  • Only wash full loads – Save on water and energy by only using your washing machine when you have a full load.
