Take A Load Off!

How many loads of laundry do you do in a week? Do you use hot water for those loads? Make the switch to using Cold water for all your washing machine loads. Take A Load Off the energy grid and the environment when you wash in cold water.  I have been washing our laundry in cold water for over 15 years and don't miss hot water a bit.

Tide and Future Friendly have launched the Take A Load Off sweepstakes. Tide also now sells Tide for coldwater wash. Since I do use cold water I don't use powders because they don't dissolve and sometimes the liquid does not all dissolve.Tide has done a good thing by making a detergent just for cold water use and it does dissovle in cold water.

Last Sunday was Earth Day, but you can be conservative all year round.  Make the promise to switch to washing in cold water on Future Friendly Facebook page. When you visit them and make the promise, you will be entered to win a Maytag® Bravos XL® HE Top Load Washer and Dryer and a one year supply of Tide Coldwater!  You can enter once a day!  A new winner will be picked each week through May 13, 2012.



Heating water for washing machines can account for up to 80 percent of the energy used per wash load in the USA. Making the switch is easy with Tide Coldwater which is specially formulated to get clothes clean in cold water.

Disclosure: The information about the sweepstakes, Tide Coldwater, and energy use was given to me by SheSpeaks. The comments and views are my own.

I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.
