The anatomy of sustainable domestic laundering behaviour
Licentiate thesis, 2021
1. Technology changes laundry conventions, while social context dictates market acceptance of new cleaning technology.
2. Technological solutions are often suggested to influence laundry behaviour, but individual concerns seem to override the effect of the interventions.
3. Consumer laundry practices are guided by social conventions that are also rooted in intrapersonal dynamics.
Hopefully these principles (as well as the detailed results from the LCA model) could be used to better understand the possibilities and limitations of domestic laundering, and guide any future interventions aiming for a more sustainable society.
