Laundry Basics

Cloths can be very expensive. Improper care of clothing can be even more expensive. Taking a few precautionary measures can dramatically extend the life of your cloths. Here are some of the basics I try to follow to make my cloths last as long as possible and keep my laundry tasks to a minimum.
  • Always check your clothing for needed repairs and stains. A few extra seconds can keep seems from ripping, buttons from falling off and stains from setting.
  • Never overload the washing machine. Cloths need room to move around to get there cleanest and this will minimize the wear and tear on them.
  • Never overload the dryer. Your dryer will work much better and it will save you a lot in energy bills.
  • Always let the soap dissolve into the water before you put your cloths in; otherwise, the soap can damage the fabric.
  • Dry on the lowest setting possible. Drying is the harshest step on laundry.
  • Wash heavily soiled items separately. Why add more dirt to fairly clean cloths if you don't have to?
  • Wash your cloths in groups of lights, mediums, and darks.
