BALTIMORE (WJZ) — You can clean up in savings by doing smart laundry.

Mary Bubala reports about 90 percent of the energy used for washing clothes is for heating the water.

There are two ways to reduce the amount of energy used.

Use less water and cooler water. Switching from hot to warm water can cut a load’s energy use in half.

Try to wash and dry full loads. But if you have a smaller load, make sure you adjust the water level.
