Washing and drying clothes

464 bytes removed, 01:13, 5 March 2008
Washing and drying are common activities that can use a lot of energy - if we aren't careful. But there are a lot of things, most importantly washing in cold water and line drying, which are not only greener, but will make your clothes last longer (as long as you don't leave them outside too long, to fade).

See the [[Clothing]] page for more detailed suggestions.hello
