Part of doing laundry is investing in laundry detergent, fabric softener, bleach, and other laundry aids. But are all of these products really necessary to get your clothes clean? And how can you reduce the costs to get more bang for your buck? The first thing to consider in reducing laundry costs is your type of washer and dryer. Are they high efficiency and energy efficient, like a LG washer dryer combo? If they are, this means the machines can use specially concentrated detergent, fabric softener, and bleach formulas.
The next way to lower laundry expenses is to consider your laundry needs. How dirty are your clothes? Lightly soiled clothes from normal wear do not require special detergents with heavy-duty stain removal products. If you have varying levels of soiled laundry loads, purchase a basic detergent for lightly soiled loads, and another detergent for heavily soiled loads. If you have a baby in the home, you do not have to spend more on laundry detergent for babies, unless your baby has allergies, or it is recommended by your pediatrician. Instead, you can use any brand of detergent that is dye free and fragrance free to launder you baby’s clothes.
The best way to save money on laundry detergent is to take advantage of store sales and coupons. Most stores run their detergent and laundry supplies sales based upon the coupons in the Sunday paper. Some stores even allow you to stack manufacturer coupons with store or competitor coupons, for even more savings.
