The cost of washing my clothes

Well, I shall reveal what it has cost me – not an arm and a leg.

Who cares! Are you hard up on cash?

CW

I care. I’m not hard up on cash.

Liar!! Liar! Yurr pants on fire!

CW

Excuse me. I came to write a blog that may assist some people to find out how much the cost of using their washing machine may cost. My experience may help a small number of people.

Why should they trust you? You are nobody!

CW

Yes I am nobody. They do not have to trust me. If they have the features from their energy provider, then they can investigate for themselves.

But you don’t know who their energy providers are.

CW

I don’t need to know that. They would know.

I still don’t get it. This is very suspect. I think you have some ulterior motove.

CW

Oooo.. big words for you. Right.. I’ve had enough of this.

No wait…I know what you’re going to do… w..w…wa..

CW

That’s it. You’ve been caged. Why do I bother to let you out? Jeez.

Right. As I was saying. The image below shows that for two washes with the washing machine I spent 66.20p Then I checked for the next peak – another wash and that was 28p.

If viewed on a mobile or tablet click the tiny image for a bigger view, or change to desktop view from mobile.

So that’s it. It is a good idea for some people to check how much electricity their washing machine consumes. Now that I have the information, I know that using a launderette’s washing machine is not a good idea for me.
