Just last week I was asked what is the one chore I hate doing? For me, it was laundry. Hate it! With six in this household if I skip a day it’s a mess, so I have to do it daily. So for me it gets taunting. However, it came to awhile back why not bake laundry better. If I have to do it, than it should be better for me, my clothes, my family, and my environment. With ENERGY STAR® washer and dryers I can do that!

How does ENERGY STAR makes laundry better?

ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers and dryers save energy, which means that I will save on energy bills. Save $490 over the lifetime of an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and even more with an ENERGY STAR washer/dryer pair.  Many are also equipped with advanced features that make cleaning and drying easier and more effective. Saving energy means that ENERGY STAR certified washers and dryers help protect the climate, which means that my kids and the planet will benefit for years to come. ENERGY STAR clothes washers use a variety of sophisticated cleaning methods that are gentler on my clothes, while ENERGY STAR clothes dryers use less heat and sensor drying which reduces wear and tear on clothes from over drying. ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers and dryers are 25% and 20% more efficient, respectively, than standard models.

There are several benefits for getting an ENERGY STAR washer and/or dryer but my favorite benefit for both of them is that they are easy to use. How is this handy? My son could do it! Now I don’t have to do laundry every day. We can rotate days or tag team it.

Why ENERGY STAR Washers?

ENERGY STAR provides multiple configurations. Which means they are available in either front-load or redesigned top-load configurations.  This comes in handy because I am short, and now I (or my son) no longer have to stand on my tip toes or get a step stool to get the clothes at the bottom.

ENERGY STAR uses high spin speeds.  Their motors spin clothes two to three times faster to extract more water. Less moisture in the clothes means less time in the dryer and less energy spent drying clothes. Which in the end mean less time doing laundry! Who doesn’t like that?!


ENERGY STAR dryers use low heat. Longer drying cycles on a low heat setting use less energy. Less energy means it is saving you so money!

Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as a steam cycle that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles. This is extremely handy for us. In August my husband started his first year as a administrator at  his school. He’s in an out of important meetings and needs to look nice and wrinkle free at all times.
