Surterre Green Tip: Wash Your Laundry in Cold Water

Here's one easy way to clean green: turn the dial to cold water.

With most clothes, you really don't need hot water to get a good cleaning. Ninety percent of the energy used by washing machines goes into heating the water. The higher the temperature of the water, the more electricity you're running and the higher the cost in terms of both energy use and money.

Add in one of the earth-friendly laundry detergents available everywhere these days and chill out about any harm to your clothes or the environment.
