Machinery eco-programs still often lack acceptance because they sometimes take a long time. In the meantime, however, these programs have also been developed to such an extent that they do not last much longer than the usual washing programs.
You absolutely must choose the eco-responsible program to save money. Due to the longer washing time and lower temperatures, the washing machine has enough time to heat up the water and the detergent can develop its full effect. The machine therefore consumes less energy in the Eco programme.
