Good to know: Cold-water detergents work similarly to conventional detergents, but they use different chemicals to pull dirt and grease from your clothes. These chemicals are more effective than the ones in conventional detergents when used in cold water.
Good for kids: Active kids mean lots of laundry. Running full loads becomes even more important when you need to wash clothes for several household members. Separate out the very oily, dirty clothes for a warm water cycle and leave the rest for cooler water cycles. A hamper or basket with multiple compartments that is easy to access in a laundry closet or hallway can make this task easy for everyone.
