Nothing impresses like a fresh, cleanly laundered shirt, but nothing is harder on your clothing than putting it through the wash. It doesn’t have to be that way, however. Read on for some top tips to remember on laundry day.
It can be tricky to get great results with your washing and take care of your clothes as well. The latest laundry technology can help, as well as some old-fashioned know-how.
Laundry mistakes to avoid
Don’t take any risks with valuable garments.
Leave it to your dry-cleaner. And remember, the sooner you take action, the better the odds of removing all traces.
Don’t use more detergent than you need. Excess detergent doesn’t get clothes any cleaner and, in fact, it can cause problems. Soap can become trapped in the fabric, making items stiff and ultimately reducing their longevity. Over time, it can gum up the machine itself, encouraging mildew growth inside. Using more detergent than you need is literally pouring money down the drain.
Don’t dry laundry for longer than necessary. Excess drying shrinks clothing and damages the underlying fabric. The same goes for excess heat. So go easy on your clothing and linens. Many items can be dried effectively at a lower, safer and less costly heat setting.
