Enjoy clothes and linens that last longer with these handy tips to improve the quality of your wash
Love the smell of clean laundry but hate dealing with the never-ending piles and piles of unwashed clothes? Make doing this household chore easier and more efficient by following these 5 simple washing and drying rules:
1. BUTTON UP
Prevent clothes from becoming a tangled mess in the washing machine by buttoning the sleeves of blouses and shirts to their front buttons before putting them in.
2. MAINTAIN COLOUR
Always turn your jeans and coloured pants inside out before washing them to prevent fade and make colour last longer.
3. BRIGHTEN UP
Are your kids’ white school socks yellowing? Forget bleach - try putting them in a wash bag with a few strips of lemon peel before tossing them in the washing machine.
4. PROTECT DELICATES
Place your delicates – especially bras – into a mesh laundry bag to avoid twisting the underwires and stretching the straps.
5. HANG FROM THE HEM
To avoid clothespin marks or sagging, hang blouses from the hemline and skirts and pants from the waistband. This will help preserve the form of your clothes so you can enjoy them longer.
