3. Pay attention to the detergent dosage in the washing machine.

When washing in the washing machine, be careful not to use too much detergent. Your machine will take longer to rinse the clothes and therefore use more electricity.

4. Reduce the drying time.

To wash more efficiently, reduce the drying and spinning times in your washing machine and let your clothes air dry. You will save money because you will use less energy and your electricity bill will be reduced.

To save energy, remember to maintain your washing machine properly so that it always runs efficiently and does not consume a lot of electricity. To thoroughly clean the appliance, you can use natural and economical products such as white vinegar and baking soda by running an empty machine at 90°C.
