Take a Load Off!!!

Tide and Future Friendly have launched the Take A Load Off  sweepstakes to encourage cold water washing. Make the promise to switch to washing in cold water on the  Future Friendly Facebook page and you'll be entered to weekly win a High Efficiency Washer and Dryer and a one-year supply of Tide Coldwater!  Enter once a day, through May 13th. 

Did you know that when doing laundry, heating water can account for up to 80 percent of the energy used per wash load in the U.S.? For instance, if an average household switched to cold water washing for one year, it would save enough energy to:
  • Watch TV for 1,363 hours
  • Charge an iPhone 4S 30,861 times
  • Power an average new refrigerator for nearly 4 months
Making the switch to washing in cold is an easy change to make with Tide Coldwater, which is specially formulated to get clothes clean in cold water.

I do quite a bit of cold water washing and look forward to trying Tide Coldwater myself.
