It’s always good to know some laundry hacks to help keep your clothing 👗clean and fresh. These tips can help you to do just that. Laundry doesn’t have to be a drag. These tips can make laundry day a breeze to get through.
Separating as you go has several benefits. One benefit is that you won’t have the work of sorting laundry later. It’s always separated and easy to see when a load is ready to throw in. You also don’t have to worry about a stray item getting into the wrong load and causing discoloration issues such as turning white socks pink. This also keeps things separated so items that need gentle care receive that instead of accidentally getting thrown in with rougher items like jeans.
Lingerie bags are so helpful with laundry. They’re great for your lingerie and delicates but they’re also good for other items. I put my camis and any other small items with loose strings in a lingerie bag and cycle them through both the washer and dryer that way. If you have a front load washer and dryer this tip is especially useful. Items with loose strings can easily get caught and badly stretched out in front load washers and dryers and this prevents that.
Don’t you love the feel of soft, fluffy towels? 🛀 They’re so perfect when you first purchase them but time and multiple trips through the washer and dryer changes that. Fabric softener can help a little but it’s hard to restore them to their former glory. But this secret can. Add half a cup of white vinegar to your laundry and enjoy the softness of your towels once again.
I’ve been using the same stain removing product for years, as in over a decade. It gets almost everything out. The miracle laundry product I always turn to is Spray n’ Wash Stain Stick. It’s easy to use, cheap and lasts forever. You don’t even have to wash immediately.
Washing in cold water can be just as effective as washing in hot, especially if you use a detergent specifically for cold washing. I wash everything in cold except my towels. Washing in cold water helps prevent fading and bleeding colors. Clothes stay bright and your electric bill stays low. It’s a win-win!
Clothing labels can be confusing. I’ll admit that I don’t know every symbol by heart. When you don’t know what a symbol means, this chart by textileaffairs.com can be very handy. Giving laundry the care it needs can help it last longer and wear better. Clothing that has a long lifespan is what we all want!
Cleaning your washer is one key to having clean clothes. They can get surprisingly dirty, especially front load washers. Running an empty load with bleach only can be helpful. I even wipe the seal of mine out with Clorox wipes on occasion because of the grime that collects there. Leaving the door open when the washer is not in use can help to prevent odor.
These’re 7 tips to help you to have clean clothes. What’re your best kept laundry secrets? I’d love to learn from you!
