It seems that clothes don't get as clean as they have in the past because of the lower water temperatures. What will people do if their clothes don't come clean? They will wash them again! We may use less energy per load but may very well increase the number of loads of laundry we do. So much for energy savings. (This reference is the summary version; original information was in a Consumer Reports article.)
Do we really want the feds to start micr0-managing like this?
