The benefits of washing at 30°
Did you know that a few small changes in your washing habits, especially using lower temperatures, can add up to some big benefits? Washing at the lowest possible temperature helps you to cut CO2 emissions, save energy and help the environment. And get this, your clothes will actually look good and last longer. So why not make a habit of lowering your washing temperature depending on what you’re washing.
Gets your clothes as clean and fresh as you need
Washing at low temperatures such as 30° gives great results. With advances in washing machines and laundry detergents, it’s now possible to get clothes clean at lower temperatures. Today’s products are made to achieve high performance results at low temperatures so this means you can lower the temperature of your wash and get clothes as clean and fresh as you need.
Keeps your clothes better for longer
Washing your clothes at lower temperatures allows you to take better care of the fabric. Your clothes will actually look good for longer. Not only do clothes retain their colour for longer when washed at lower temperatures, but there is also less wear of the textile.
Collective efforts reap big environmental benefits
Washing at 30° is an eco-friendly way to save energy while treating clothes to a gentle cycle that leaves them spotless. Because modern detergents are designed to work well at low temperatures, setting the washing machine to 30° can save you money while protecting fabric from the extra stresses of hot water and reducing the likelihood of colour seepage.
Please remember - When using a shared laundry facility, wash at 30-40˚C and use a general purpose powder detergent.
