You might think it's greener to overload your washing machine rather than running smaller loads, but the reality is it's worse for everything. Putting in too much clothing causes damage to other garments when zippers and buttons can catch on other clothes and cause tears. Plus, dirty clothes don't get clean when the sudsy water can't circulate enough to remove stains and grime. And the extra weight can overwork the washing machine to the point where the motor wears out. The solution? Run normal-sized loads for optimum performance.
