How to Prepare Clothes for Washing by jim.sheng

  • Sort the laundry according to type of fabric, color, and degree of soiling and permissible water temperature. Always follow the advice on the garment labels.
  • Laundry items with metal attachments such as, bras, belt buckles and metal buttons will damage the washing machine. Remove metal attachments or place the items in a clothing bag, pillow case, or something similar.
  • Empty pockets and remove all foreign objects such as coins, pens and paper clips. If possible, turn pockets out and brush.
  • Place small items like infants’ socks and nylon stockings, etc. in a laundry bag, pillow case or something similar. This will also save your laundry from getting lost.
  • Place curtains in the machine with care. Remove curtain rails and paters.
  • Fasten zippers, sew loose buttons and mend rips and tears.
  • Wash “machine washable” or “hand washable” labelled products only with an appropriate program.
  • Do not wash colours and whites together. New, dark coloured cottons may release a lot of dye. Wash them separately.
  • Tough stains must be treated before washing. If you are not sure, check with a dry cleaner,
  • Use only dyes/colour changers and lime removers suitable for machine wash. Always follow the instructions on the packaging.
  • Wash trousers and delicate clothes turned inside out.
  • Keep laundry items made of Angora wool in the freezer for a few hours before washing. This will reduce piling.
