Morning Start: There’s no difference between hot and cold water during laundry

Your morning start for Wednesday, February 23rd.

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Hope you’re staying warm!

Fun Fact: Because of advances in soap and detergent, there is no difference between using hot water and cold water when washing clothes.

The only difference is you’re spending more money using all that hot water because approximately 75 per cent of energy used in a load of laundry is to warm the water.
