6 tips for a wash that is more ecological        

machine à laver et séchoir WASHiN

Did you know thata washing machine consumes about 22 000 litres of water and over 1,000 kWh per year (Calculated on the basis of an equipment 2200W used at a rate of 6 loads of laundry per week) ? If the wash represents a significant part of energy consumption consumption (electricity and water), it is possible to increase these numbers with simple gestures...

1 - Choose the wash cold

With a wash at 60°, 80 % of the energy used by the machine is designed to heat the water. Logically enough, by opting for a program at 30°c, the use of electricity is bound to be more reduced. However, this type of cycle is perfect for cleaning lightly soiled laundry.

Good to know : WASHiN offers you several cycles more responsible, as the program ÉCOWASHIN and the program COLD. It is possible to know all the details of the consumption of energy and water programs, our washing machine by consulting our CSR charter.

2 - Avoid the pre-wash, often unnecessary

While the prewash uses 15% of the energyit turns out useless with the latest machines. Even with the short programs, the machine will not suffer no thermal shockthat could fix the dirt on fibres. First, it is wet at low temperature, before the latter increases progressively according to the needs and garment washed.

Good to know : The machine WASHiN do not use prewash before their cycles.

3 - Trigger the machine to off-peak hours

In terms of power consumption, it is better to run the washing machine (and most importantly, dryer, wholesale consumer) at the time of off-peak hours. Traditionally, these periods will focus on the midday break (12 h – 15 h) and the night (22 h to 6 h). This system allows you to smooth the national needs on the day and reduce the impacts of CO2.

4 - Optimize the frequency of washing

Each garment does not require the same rhythm of washing. When the small machine can only be worn once before being washed, the pants can last an entire week before landing in the washing machine. To limit its environmental impact, this is the review of its habits and do wash only what you need.

Ideally, it should also be optimize loading : a full charge allows you to save up to 50 % energy compared to 2 half-loads. Here, it should be relying on the size of the tank rather than the maximum capacity indicated by the manufacturer and is valid only for cotton clothing.

5 - Use the detergent that is respectful of the environment

Wash more environmentally friendly also requires the use of a detergent respects the environment. In WASHiN, we have adopted a product under the label ECOCERTissued following a precise and carefully controlled by a body of certifications independent. It is suitable for all textiles, which respects the colors and leaves no trace...

Good to know : The determination of the laundry is a delicate step : the tendency is to always put too much. With WASHiN, more problems ! The dose of detergent is automatically paid depending on the program and the characteristics of the machine.

6 - Go in a laundry manager

You can also choose to wash your clothes in laundry liable as WASHiN : thanks to it, you will reduce significantly your consumption of water and electricity.

Good to know : WASHiN is engaged in a CSR policy. In this framework, we put at the disposal of the material laundromat eco-responsiblewe use the laundry ECOCERT, we collect and recycle cans laundry and we offer baskets linen green to our customers. In other words, if the environmental approach you care about, the choice of a laundry WASHiN appears as a highlight !
