Cold or Hot Water Wash Cycle? New Arguments Push the Environmentally Friendly Benefits of Cold Wash
According to a recent article in The Wall Street Journal, the temperature of the water you use to wash your clothes may not be as important as once thought. While many of us have been taught that hot water is necessary to kill germs and remove stains, the reality is that modern detergents are often powerful enough to do the job just as well in cold water.
In fact, using cold water has a number of benefits. For one, it's gentler on your clothes, causing less shrinkage and fading over time. It's also better for the environment, as heating water accounts for a significant portion of a washing machine's energy usage.
If you're concerned about getting your clothes truly clean, don't worry: studies have shown that using cold water and a good detergent can be just as effective as using hot water. This is because modern detergents are designed to break down dirt and stains even in lower temperatures.
