Everyone thinks washing clothes is easy – you fill the washing machine with dirty clothes and just run it. This is a fallacy that can cost you the loss of your favorite clothes.

It’s no coincidence that washing machines are equipped with programs that are used for different types of staple items. Here is what to consider when you wash your clothes in the laundry.

    The choice of detergent is very important for the condition of the clothes you wash. Choose a mild, color-safe detergent that’s suitable for your washing machine. Don’t use too much detergent because it can cause damage to certain fabrics.

  • Drying Clothes

    Always check the care label on your clothes before drying them. Some fabrics may be too delicate for drying machines and require air drying instead.If the care label recommends air drying, invest in a good-quality drying rack or find a suitable flat surface to lay your clothes on.

Additional tip: Remove clothes from the dryer as soon as they’re dry to prevent wrinkles and avoid over-drying.

Ironing and Steaming
