What's the best way to do the laundry that will keep clothes from fading and leave clothes in the best condition?
How do you do your own laundry? Please tell me step-by-step.
Thank you ^_^
edit: I have a washing machine and a dryer btw. I've heard that using a dryer is terrible for clothes though
separate out the laundry into:
whites, colors, reds, permanent press (jeans, dark socks, athletic wear, etc), hand wash items
hot wash for whites. add bleach
colors cold wash.
reds cold wash
perm press has separate perm press wash cycle
while waiting for laundry do the hand wash items.
pour water into basin (usually cold for delicates, knits, etc)
little bit of detergent.
gently maneouver your hands through the items.
fill in for final rinse.
flat dry for all items you deem important not to shrink and knits and delicate items. sweaters, wools, etc.
all others throw in at med cycle dry.
