HOW TO DO YOUR

LAUNDRY

9. Refer to your labels for how to dry your clothes. Some clothes are not to be put in the dryer as they’ll shrink or get damaged. Let your clothes air dry if you are unsure. 1. Sort your laundry. Sort it by color (lights, darks, white), by fabric/ material, and by level of soil.

2. If you are unsure how certain fabrics can be washed, refer to the tag on your clothing It will determine which temperature to wash it in and how to dry it for longer lasting quality

30

3. If there is a stain on your clothing, treat it or soak it to increase the chances of removing the stain well before you do your load of laundry.

10. Do not forget to empty the lint tray and use a fabric dryer sheet to help with static control.

4. Go through your clothes. Make sure you do not have anything in the pockets such as electronics, paper, or even money!

8. Do not overstuff your washer! Your clothes will not be as clean if you have too full of a load. 5. Use the appropriate amount of laundry detergent! Refer to the bottle.

7. Select the appropriate water temperature. If the label on your clothing does not advise you, it is safe to assume cold water for colored clothing, warm water for white clothing, and hot water for pillow cases, bed linens, and towels. *Remember, hot water can shrink clothes so using cold water all the time is not a bad idea.

6. (Optional) Add fabric softener to the load for softer clothes.

2. If you are unsure how certain fabrics can be washed, refer to the tag on your clothing It will determine which temperature to wash it in and how to dry it for longer lasting quality

30

3. If there is a stain on your clothing, treat it or soak it to increase the chances of removing the stain well before you do your load of laundry.

10. Do not forget to empty the lint tray and use a fabric dryer sheet to help with static control.

4. Go through your clothes. Make sure you do not have anything in the pockets such as electronics, paper, or even money!

8. Do not overstuff your washer! Your clothes will not be as clean if you have too full of a load. 5. Use the appropriate amount of laundry detergent! Refer to the bottle.

7. Select the appropriate water temperature. If the label on your clothing does not advise you, it is safe to assume cold water for colored clothing, warm water for white clothing, and hot water for pillow cases, bed linens, and towels. *Remember, hot water can shrink clothes so using cold water all the time is not a bad idea.

6. (Optional) Add fabric softener to the load for softer clothes.
