Washing Your Laundry

Of course your goal is to have the cleanest laundry. So be sure to pick a large enough washer to accommodate your clothes. This allows for plenty of water and room for the agitator to tumble the clothes. Without enough water or room, the clothes remain unmoved and therefore don't become clean. The tempature of your water should follow the manufacturers label. Be sure to use detergent sparingly. More soap does not mean cleaner clothes. Too much soap will actually shut down the machine. Also check all pockets and remove any items, unravel shirt sleeves, unbunch socks and pant legs. This also helps to get clothes their cleanest!

Drying Your Laundry

To dry your clothes effeciently, place like clothes together in one dryer. Be sure to allow for plenty of room for the clothes to tumble. Overstuffing the dryer does not allow the hot air to flow between the clothes. This can singe or burn your clothes that get stuck up against the drum because they do not flow throughout the space and it will not dry the clothes stuck in the middle of the drum.  In addition, too many clothes will not allow the drum to move.
