Thought for Today - Eco-Friendly
"Being clean isn't always green, especially when it comes to laundry. The dirt: The average household does 400 loads a year, consuming 13,500 gallons of water. … Run only full loads and use cold water whenever possible: About 90 percent of the energy used washing clothes goes to heating the water."
— Louisa Thomas, from O, The Oprah Magazine September 2007
