Okay, it sounds obvious, but it needs to be repeated because many people still tend to ignore this advice.

We mentioned this in the introduction, but the temperature where you wash your clothes also greatly affects the cost of washing clothes. Washing at a high temperature costs about IDR 2,700 while washing at a low temperature (like 30 °C) is much cheaper with an average of IDR 1,050. It’s not always necessary to use a hot cycle. Dust and odors are already removed at 20 degrees, and most stains are removed at 30 or 40 degrees.
