Sorting :

  • Always sort your clothes before you wash them!

  • Even if you plan on washing everything in cold water, you still want to separate your whites from your darks to keep your whites from getting dingy.

  • Your dark load: Colored tees and tops, exercise bras, yoga pants, colored underwear, and socks. Basically any clothes that aren’t white can go here. Got a new dark item of clothing? Wash it separately first. Make sure you turn pants and tops inside out before washing to reduce color loss.

  • Your jeans or other dark groupings: If you have a lot of jeans, make them their own load. That way they won’t bleed out on any of your other darks. Plus, since you’re likely air-drying them, you won’t accidentally toss them into the dryer with your other darks. Likewise, if your family tends to have tons of pink or tons of red clothing, make these a separate load for peace of mind.

  • As you sort, attack stains: Quickly examine each piece of clothing for stains and spray with a spotting product. With today’s spotting products, you don’t need to worry about letting a remover soak into your clothes before washing. In fact, don’t make the mistake of spraying a stained item too far in advance, such as when you take it off and toss into the laundry basket. Leaving such a heavy-duty product to set into your clothing could cause color loss, and stain removers actually need to get moist to work instead of drying out on your stained top, so to effectively get a stain out of a garment, treat with remover and wash the item as soon as possible.

Washing and Drying :

  • Always make sure your clothes are soaked in the water before your start washing them.
  • Always sort your colors
  • Don't Overload
  • One of the best ways that you can ensure that your clothing enjoys a long life is to make certain that you pay attention to the type of cycle that best serves your garments.
  • Pay attention to when your washing machine completes its work.
