Laundry Doing laundry for a family can use a lot of water, especially if you are washing clothes daily. Although most new, energy-efficient washers automatically adjust the water level, if you have an older washer, this doesn’t apply. You should only do laundry when you have a full load of clothes. The average family washes about two loads of clothes a week (104 laundry loads per year). By washing a full load of clothes each time, you can save 1,560 gallons of water per year. In monetary amounts, this amounts to a savings of $2.30 per year.
