Dishwasher Efficiency Tips

The dishwasher is a wonderful household tool in the modern home. This appliance can make dish clean up much easier than traditional hand washing. Beko dishwashers are some of the best dishwashers, but even the best can benefit from tips to make them run more efficiently.

Watch the drain in your dishwasher. Food and debris can become caught in the drain of the dishwasher clogging it, and causing the washer to be less efficient. Clean the drain whenever you see debris in the way.

Run the dishwasher with baking soda. Running a cycle with just baking soda (no dishes) will freshen the machine and help prevent buildup that can cause problems with the machine later on. A sprinkle of baking soda at the bottom of the dishwasher during regular washing will also help prevent watermarks on dishes.

Loading the washer strategically will help the dishwasher run more efficiently. Cups should be upside down. Place large items such as pots and pans and plates so that the surface most needing to be washed get the maximum amount of wash water.

Washing Machine Efficiency Tips

The invention of the electric powered washing machine revolutionized the way laundry was washed. The first washers were very simple compared to todays sophisticated machines like the AEG washing machines or the Beko washing machines. The machine comes with instructions, but there are also some simple tips to help your AEG washing machine run more efficiently.

Washing full (NOT overloaded) loads will help your machine run at its most efficient. The machine is designed to run best when it is at the proper capacity. Also, the machine uses only slightly less water to clean a half load as a full washer load, so the full load is a more economical use of water.

Lowering the temperature of your wash load can help reduce your energy costs. Even a ten degree reduction in the water temperature can result in an energy savings of ten percent per load. You can also use the cold setting on your AEG washing machine for increased savings. Many detergent manufacturers produce detergent designed especially for the cold washer setting.

Reduce the amount of detergent you use. Detergent manufacturers make recommendations on how much of their products to use. They recommend you use much more detergent than you actually need, so you end up buying more. What they dont tell consumers is that clothes get just as clean using less detergent.

An additional spin cycle is another simple and effective way to make your washing machine more efficient. This will remove more water than just one spin cycle, which will reduce the time your clothes need to spend in the dryer.
