The ultimate laundry guide to saving washing disasters
Do you ever feel like as soon as you turn your back on a pile of dirty laundry, it suddenly doubles in size?
Plus if you’re a parent, the pile just seems to get bigger and bigger. It feels like the smaller the child, the more laundry that child seems to create.
Luckily, Workwear Giant have cracked the code when it comes to washing both efficiently and effectively. They’ve created the ultimate family-friendly guide to laundry:
The guide has simplified everything from care label symbols to washing machine cycles and even recommended pre-treating stain tips.
The do’s of laundry
Wash your clothes less frequently – constantly submitting fabrics to soaking, detergent and spinning can wear them out. Instead, hang them up to air, preferably outside of the wardrobe.
Has your child accidentally got pen ink on their clothing? Soak the garment in a bowl of milk and vinegar overnight, and it will have disappeared by the morning.
Always wash your darks inside out, as this will help the garment keep its colour without fading.
If your child has been messing around in the mud and their clothing is looking extra-dirty, treat it to a pre-wash cycle (without detergent), and then wash it on a normal wash (with detergent).
The don’ts of laundry
If you’re washing baby clothes, never use a strong detergent as this may irritate the baby’s skin.
Although you may be tempted, never overfill your washing machine – when your clothes are loaded, you should be able to put two fists in the top without difficulty.
Don’t use fabric softener on towels, as they’ll become less absorbent over time.
Never leave wet clothes in the washing machine – it only takes 24 hours for the fungus, mildew, to start growing.
