Laundry was just an essential work in the period of kings and queens. Perhaps that’s because they had a laundress to do it for them. But nowadays, most of the people are stuck doing this work themselves. According to the Environmental protection agency (EPA), the average American family faces 400 loads of laundry each year- it means more than one load every day.
These days we don’t use our hands, washtub and scrub board to wash, thanks to the washing machines where our clothes automatically get a wash and dry. But it is also bad news, it has increased the cost of electricity, water, and detergent and it is also so much expensive. Poor people can’t even afford it.
But don’t worry, we have a solution for you, with just some easy tricks, you can cut the cost of your wash by half or even more than that. Don’t get scared. I won’t suggest you go to the nearest river and beat them against a rock.
