Appliance Tip of the Day: Washer Water Usage

Did you know that the typical top loading washer uses 46 gallons of water per full load of wash vs. the typical front loader using 12 (that’s right, count ’em, 12) gallons? In addition to the substantial water savings with a front loading washer, you’ll also use less detergent per load of wash and your clothes will last longer washing them in a front loader because you don’t have that damn agitator whipping them back and forth. Oh, sure, a front loader will cost you a little more up front but you’ll more than get your money back by using less water and detergent and by not having to buy replacement clothes as often. Fun facts to know and tell.
