Laundry Do's and Don'ts

Laundry DO’s

  • Check the label: The laundry care label has all the information you need to care for your clothes.
  • Clean your washing machine: A clean washing machine means cleaner clothes!
  • Test for colourfastness: Avoid dyes from running onto other clothing by testing for colourfastness first.
  • Pre-treat stains: Get stains out easily by treating them asap, before you wash as usual. This will help keep your clothes from having discoloured patches.
  • Wash coloured clothes inside out: Protect clothes colours and make them last longer by washing them inside out.

Laundry DON’TS

  • Overload washing machine: Your clothes won’t get cleaned properly if there’es too much in the washing machine!
  • Put detergent directly onto clothes: Avoid laundry detergent residue on clothes by making sure you use laundry detergent correctly.
  • Leave zippers open: Close all clothes zippers so that they don’t snag onto or tear your delicate clothing.
  • Scrub stains: Scrubbing stains will only make it spread more and will become more difficult for it to be removed.
  • Just separate by colour: Before washing, sort clothes, not just by colour but by how lightly or heavily soiled they are and also by fabric material- abrasive fabrics from delicates.
