We all know how it feels when we expect to pull out our whites from the washing machine but only to find everything in pink because of a red sock that snuck in with them. Here are simple tips for sorting out your laundry and saying goodbye to these accidents forever.
Sorting Clothes by Color
Most clothing with deeper colors tend to bleed dye when their washed. To avoid other clothes being damaged, it is best to have your clothes separated and grouped according to dark, medium and light colours. When washing deep colored clothing like indigo jeans or bright sweatshirts by themselves for the first few wash.
Sort Clothes by Fabric Type
If you have heavier items like towels, you should consider separating them from lighter weighted clothes to prevent any abrasion and damage to more delicate fabrics. For the same reason, separate clothes with zipper and buttons from knits and sheer lingerie.
Another reason to separate laundry by fabric type is that heavier items take longer to dry than lighter ones. By drying them together, it can cause the lighter items to over dry and mightstress the fibers.
Sort by the Amount of Dirt on Items
If you have heavily soiled clothes, it is best to wash them separately on a longer wash cycle. This provides any agitation needed to get rid of the dirt.
Turn Your Clothes Inside Out
This will protect them during the wash. It also stops jeans turning white at the seams.
