Tips for Laundry Cleaning
Laundry is a never-ending job. Not only does there seem to be loads of clothes beside the washing machine in the laundry room or scattered about the bathroom floor, but there are other items such as bedding to wash. In addition, we have always been told to separate light from dark clothing. To make matters worse, the cleaning information tags on denim, cotton, polyester and other materials are often confusing or conflicting. Items with stains, such as coffee or ketchup, require different cleaning methods. While it is extremely tempting to just toss everything in the washer at once, this is a bad idea that often leads to damage.
We show you how to make the job of laundering easier to remove dirt and tough stains, whether you’re cleaning everyday clothes, jeans, hats and caps, blankets, pillows, or delicate items. We also teach you some handy tips to prevent your clothes from shrinking and ways to use the washer as a tool for stretching clothing that no longer fits quite right. We provide you with handy DIY recipes for making your own laundry detergent and how to keep your laundry clean, stain-free, and fresh smelling.
