Quick Tip

There is very little need to wash your clothes in anything but cold water.  I actually thought that most people used cold until someone told me they use warm and hot almost all of the time.  With the exception of cloth diapers, I use cold water for every load of laundry.  Everything comes out clean and I don't need special detergent, either.  I just use my homemade laundry detergent.  So, cut down on those monthly utility bills by washing with cold water whenever you can!

  1. I wash everything in cold water, and thought most others did too, until I asked my sister. It's a little bit to do my part. :)

  2. I agree! Chris is insistent that his chore clothes be washed in warm though.

  3. We use cold water, but I will often times use hot water for our towels and the boys underwear (due to accidents he has). I use it on our towels, because if I don't, they tend to smell from sitting and being wet. Plus I'm bad at laundry. I think if you put the towels in right after using them, this wouldn't be a problem, but in my house--things don't get done ASAP so they tend to smell worse if I don't use hot water. Just my two cents.

  6. Love your blog! Following from FF too! I wash almost everything in cold, except Baby's clothes. She's a spitter, so I want to make sure we get everything she wears sanitized!
