2. how often do you do laundry
3. what do you wash on? examples-cold, hot or warm? or do you do a mixture of these due to different clothing/household items?
I didn't know dust mites could be controlled with hot water! Thanks for the info!canadian gardener said:Prairie flower don't let my answer scare you off.
I'm the village crank on hot water washing, and I never can resist an opportunity to preach on germs, dust mites and parasites and how the world would be better with hot water laundering. :toothy:
But I'm otherwise harmless, and the ladies who wash in cold and warm water just sigh and carry on in their frugal ways wondering if I have a special little bee in my bonnet!:toothy:
Welcome to the village btw! Nice to have you here (and even if you don't wash in hot, I'll still have a virtual coffee with you and swap frugality tales!)
