    15 widespread mistakes we make when washing clothes

    The first thing you should do to keep your clothes immaculate and beautiful is to learn how to wash them properly.

    1. Improper sorting. Apart from considering the color, you should also pay attention to the fabric type. For example, polar fleece clothes should be washed separately. And you shouldn’t mix towels with clothes made of synthetic fibers.
    2. Lifting stains in the wrong way. Don’t be amazed by a new hole if you are used to scrubbing stains vigorously. They should be washed off gently. The best way to prevent holes is to put some white fabric over the stain and let it become soaked.


    1. Using too much washing powder. This can result in getting too much foam which can collect dirt in such parts of a shirt as the collar. This will lead to making the clothes even dirtier, and that is not the result you want to achieve, right?


    1. Not paying attention to zippers. They should be zipped properly before you wash the garment as zipper teeth can easily spoil other clothes.

    2. Buttoning clothes. You should always remember to unbutton shirts, etc. Otherwise the buttons may come off, and the clothes will look untidy.

    3. Using too much bleach. Bleach makes fabrics become less durable and they can then tear easily, which is why you should try boiling the laundry. You can do this by taking a large saucepan and adding two drops of lemon juice.


    1. Laundering swimming suits in a washing machine. Swimming suits, racing briefs, and any other clothes made of spandex or elastane should never be washed in a washing machine. The correct way is to hand launder them in cool water.

    2. Giving the washing machine time to ’rest.’ Some users prefer to do this because they believe that several washing cycles in a row can lead to a breakdown. However, that is erroneous. Using the washing machine without a break reduces electricity consumption as the washer uses the heat reamining after the previous cycle.
