Information on washing machines

Consumers will find it easy to understand the water efficiency level based on the number of ticks, which ranges from one to three, reflected in the label. Labels with more ticks mean that consumers can save more water. One-tick products help consumers save 81 litres (about 54 1.5-litre bottles) of water per wash, while two-tick products can save them 102 litres (about 68 1.5-litre bottles) of water and three-tick products can save as much as 112 litres (about 75 1.5-litre bottles) of water.
