#37 Wash Clothes in Cold Water

You will save two ways by washing with cold water:
* Lower Gas/Electric Bill because you are not requiring the water to be heated before using
* Clothes last longer when washed in cold rather than hot, so you need to buy less clothes over your lifetime

90% of the energy used in a top-loader goes into heating water for washing, so you cut your costs considerably by using cold water. And if you use a front loader, which is more energy efficient, you will cut your energy costs & water bill even more.
