What laundry detergent should I use? Dry, powder detergent or liquid laundry detergent?
It’s hard to choose laundry detergent when browsing the store’s shelves. There are so many different laundry detergents to choose from, and all of them promise to be better and stronger than its shelf mate.
The best choice is to get a liquid laundry detergent. I personally choose All’s hypoallergenic Clean and Clear concentrated liquid laundry detergent. Liquid laundry detergent is good because you can also use it to treat stains-a feat that powder detergents have a hard time doing.
Should I buy pretreatment laundry products?
Stuff like Tide To Go and other pre-treatment laundry products are great for stubborn stains like grass stains or blood stains. Everyone should own at least one of these products.
Should I buy dryer sheets?
Dryer sheets are indespensable. You’ll want to throw one or two sheets into all of your loads to keep static off of your laundry and to make your clothes lint-free. No one should go without dryer sheets.
Should I buy cholorine bleach?
Yes! While bleach can get a bad reputation sometimes, it’s great to have to make your white’s brighter and whiter! Just be extra careful when using it with colors. For colors, instead of buying liquid chlorine bleach, use oxygen bleach. It’s safe for colors.
What is the best way to wash cotton or synthetic fabrics?
Use the handy laundry wash chart below as a guide on the best ways to wash different clothing articles made of the various listed fabrics.
How to Wash Silk
– Dry clean
How to Wash Spandex, Polyester, or Nylon
– Machine wash in warm
How to Wash Cotton
– Machine wash in cold.
– Do not dry on hot, as cotton shrinks!
How to Wash Wool
– Dry cleaning is the best (albeit most expensive) option.
The most important thing to remember is to remember to read the tags on your garments and all your clothes. These tags will often show you exactly what to do with the individual piece of clothing. Always be aware of the type of material your laundry is made of, and wsah it and dry it appropriately. Too many nice sweaters and shirts have been thrown out because the owner washed them the wrong way or dried them in the dryer on too high of a heat setting.
I hope this article helped. Happy laundry washing!
