Washing

Wash efficiently

Always make sure you wash your laundry on a full load at lower temperatures. Cutting back your washing machine by just one cycle per week can save you £5 a year on energy.

Turn off the tap

Don’t run the tap when washing your dishes. Using a washing up bowl can save you £30 a year in energy bills.

Hang up your laundry

Try and hang up your laundry rather than use a tumble dryer. The use of tumble dryers can cost an average of £53 a year for a household.
