Tidbit: Wash linens in HOT water. Washing linens and other fabrics in warm water eliminates 70% of bacteria. Washing them in hot water eliminates 98%. I wash my undergarments as well as my linens in hot water and everything else in cold to save energy, and my heat bill. To further help the electricity bill air dry heavy linens when possible.

wanna hear something border line germ-o-phobe--I also pour in bleach into my whites with the hot water, maybe it doesn't do anything extra than the hot water is already doing, but it makes me feel better :)
