    This commercial laundry company uses green initiatives like solar energy water heating to be more eco-friendly – http://prestigecorp.com/green_initiatives.aspx

    Siemens also makes excellent energy and water saving washing machines. After comparing many brands we finally chose Siemens model WD 7295 which had the best ratings in both catagories. This model has many good features including fuzzy logic controls to minimize water use and cycle time, the washing perfomance is very good and sfter 1 year we are very satisfied.

    On the other hand, I suggest people take care with Samsung, our previous machine was that and after 3 years and 4 repairs including one motor replacement, we finally gave up on it when the warranty expired. This was a compact model and I thnk the drum design was at fault because it always twisted up the clothing and unbalanced the load, maybe the larger machines don’t have such problems.

    DONT HEAT DRY CLOTHES. it’s a rediculous waste of energy and damges clothing. If you set up a simple hanging drying rack and use a electric fan, most clothing will dry almost as quickly wuth very little power use and your clothes won’t shrink or fade. We yse a ceielg monted drying rack theat lowers by cable and pulley suspended next to our outside window sor fresh air and sunsihine drying in nice weather.
