Make sure you always separate colours from whites.
This may seem simple and obvious, but having separate laundry baskets for your lights, darks and delicates is the best way of making sure the colours and quality stay as they should for longer.
Check the clothing label.
Following the exact washing instructions for every item will reduce the risk of any surprises at the other end. Try and group clothes together according to their labels to save time later on.
Add a scoop of detergent
It's so simple, your clothes will come out extra fresh.
Choose the correct washing machine setting.
The clothing label should help you out on this one. Don’t learn the hard way that a 90-degree wash and wool don’t mix!
Don’t overload the washing machine.
Clothes become heavier when wet, so make sure you leave enough space. You should be able to place a palm on top of the load before it starts. This will let the drum do its job and allow the suds and clothes to spin around properly.
Add fabric enhancer.
This will help keep your clothes soft and fresh smelling. Just a capful can make all the difference to the quality of your clothes.
