Cold vs Hot Water

Do ya'll do all of the wash in cold water?  I use hot water for underwear, towels and sheets.  For the rest I use cold.  For those who use cold only have you been able to tell a difference?  What about killing germs? 


  1. I used to do whites in hot, towels in warm, everything else cold. I switched to cold for everything but whites (warm) and noted no difference in cleanliness. I line dry for teh most part-sun is a natural disinfectant. Used cotton diapers for the kids, and hung out, they were crystal white (done in warm also), no stains, clean and fresh. If you machine dry-that alone would kill any germs off.

  2. I've always used cold water.
