Washing on the line
  • Choose a front load washing machine with a 4-star WELS Scheme rating or better and you could use up to 50 percent^ less water than lower WELS rated washing machines. 
  • Front loaders use less water than top loaders, up to 70% less in some cases or 36,000 litres per year for a typical household* Try to only wash when you have a full load.
  • Instead of doing a lot of small loads, sort clothes and wash bigger loads less frequently and you will save 10 litres* of water each wash. 
  • Pre-treating stains before you wash will reduce the need to rewash. 
  • When hand washing delicate fabrics, use only as much water as you need in the sink or bucket.
