Water-wise tip: Do laundry only when washer is full

Published: Saturday, May. 31, 2014 - 12:00 am

This is part of a weekly feature in Home & Garden, highlighting ways residents can save water.

•  Wash only full loads of laundry.

This is another common-sense way to save. Depending on the efficiency of your clothes washer, you can save 15 to 45 gallons a load. If you have a less efficient washer, cutting out just one load a week adds up to more than 2,300 gallons of water savings a year.
