Basic rules when washed to extend the life of your clothes:
Preparation for laundering:
Empty all garment pockets.
Shake the dust from the garment.
Close all zippers (excluding zippers on pockets) to protect your clothes from being damaged by the rotation of the drum. The same applies to all knobs and clasps.
Turn it inside out before placing in the laundry. Thus, its front part is protected from damage during laundering.
Socks should not be of orb.
Sleeves and trouser legs should be unrolled.
Delicate lingerie is best to be put in the sac for delicate laundry in order to prevent damage.
Sort whites from colored.
Sort dark saturated or black clothes from lighter color as they can color the lighter colors.
Separate clothes according to their matter. Wash according to the type of fabric – linen, silk, wool, cotton, corresponding to the program.
Check the labels on the clothes to make sure they are appropriate for the selected program.
Separate heavily soiled clothes from slightly soiled.
Do not overcrowd the washing machine.
Beware of overdosing with detergent and fabric softener. Always comply with the degree of contamination of the clothes and their fabric:
Select the wash temperature according to the material and the degree of contamination. Follow the recommendations of labels on the clothes.
Centrifugation depends on the program you have selected. Do not use centrifuge in laundering of delicate fabrics.
The low wash temperature will keep the color of clothes sparkling and the fibers of the tissue in an ideal shape for a long time.
When washing at a lower temperature will reduce the electric bill and contribute to care for the environment.
Do not leave wet laundry in the washing machine or laundry basket. This can be the cause of stains from moisture, folds and wrinkling.
All dryers function as rotate and blow hot air around the clothes.
Dryers not only save time (because you do not spread), but also give the fabric softness.
Always check the symbols on the garment label. They give you information about whether the garment is suitable for dryer. Do not use a dryer for delicate fabrics!
Drying of large quantities of laundry is not recommended as it crease and remains uneven dry.
Drying of fine laundry – wool and silk clothes is not recommendable. They can shrink and lose their shape.
When drying synthetic materials (such as curtains), nylon tights, clothing with metal or rubber accessories, always choose low temperatures.
Put delicate laundry into a sac when you dry it with other clothes.
Laundering of baby clothes:
Laundering of baby clothes in 30 degree water is not laundering. This temperature is favourable to the staphylococcus bacteria that remain in the laundry. At a temperature of 60 degrees, the number of surviving bacteria decreases between ten and one hundred times, but not all bacteria disappear.
When choosing detergent, it is important to read labels and take baby phosphate-free detergents, without softeners.
Wash baby's clothes separately from the clothes of other family members.
Use the longest program and highest possible temperature that provides your machine.
Avoid fabrics or colors, whose manufacturers recommend to wash at lower temperatures. Note that the minimum temperature to launder baby clothes is 60 degrees.
For baby clothes is best to use a dryer. Do not store the wet and insufficiently dry baby clothes. Moisture is conducive to bacterial growth.
Ironing of baby clothes kills mites. Iron with steam, but not store immediately baby clothes and wait for them to dry.
For easy laundering, put socks, slippers and other small items of baby clothes in a separate bag so you can easily remove it from the machine. Another advantage of this action is to reduce the likelihood of a baby clothes to be sucked and clog the washing machine hoses.
It is recommended contaminated clothing to be subjected as soon as possible to the cleaners. The stains left untreated for a long time may persist or even damage the fabric.
If your clothes are stained, especially if they are of unknown origin, do not try to remove them by hand. Many of them in contact with the water are fixed and then may not be able to be cleaned. So first should be treated chemically.
If you know the origin of the stains notify the specialist in the studio for dry cleaning, it will facilitate the work of its removal.
Never remove the labels with instructions from your clothes or at least keep them to know how to treat the clothes.
If necessary, remove knobs, trims and other accessories that are glued or are soluble in perchlorethylene - this will determine the specialist studio. If not removed, the company is not responsible for the quality of service.
Clean winter clothes before storing. Chemical treatment guarantees protection from moths.
Do not attempt to wash jackets, outerwear and etc. Because there is a danger to shrink or warp. For everything that you suspect may be damaged with laundry (tablecloths, covers, bedspreads) use dry cleaning, of course unless you're convinced the label that the manufacturer allows it.
Be careful with suede clothing, water stains can not be removed.
