Updated : October 28, 2019 01:48 PM IST
When the washing machine is only half filled, it still uses 94 percent of the energy, 74 percent of the water, 67 percent of the detergent as compared with a full machine.
When clothes are only slightly soiled, a wash at low temperature (for example at 30 degree Celsius) for a longer period of time may already provide sufficient cleaning result and may save approximately 36 percent energy.
Eco-labeled detergents are certified for their environmental friendliness. Also, liquid laundry detergents are more environment friendly as compared to their powder counterparts.
