For many of us, doing laundry is not our favorite household chore. So who can blame us if we rush a bit to get it done? But being rash with laundry can come at the expense of our valuable clothing. Here are three quick tricks to preserving your clothes.
- Don’t over stuff the washing machine. As tempting as it is, over-stuffing won’t allow the water and detergent in your machine to clean efficiently and can lead to over and under-treated pieces.
- Add a bit of vinegar in the washing machine to colored loads to keep colors bright. Don’t worry, the smell washes out.
- Mark stains with clothes spins. Keep some clothes pins next to each laundry basket in the house and teach your family to attach a bin to their shirt or pants when they toss their laundry in the basket.
