Is washing at lower temperatures less effective?

Old habits die hard, it's true. Many of us still believe that lowering the temperature compromises the cleanliness of our clothing. Fortunately, this is no longer the case, thanks to the recent innovations developed by both the manufacturers of appliances and detergents. In recent years, washing machines have come a long way in terms of improving their efficiency. Dash, a well-known manufacturer of detergents, thanks to its experience and commitment to protecting the environment, has developed detergents suitable for low temperatures, so that washing with cold water can provide truly brilliant results!

It prolongs the life of the garments;
It allows you to save on your electricity bills, thanks to energy savings of up to 60%;
It reduces the CO2 emissions produced during the washing of laundry and minimises the environmental impact.

Use Dash All-in-1 PODS® washing capsules after loading the washing machine and set a lower temperature.
