A little know-how about laundry can help you extend the shelf life of your favorite clothes. When the word laundry comes to our mind, we think of stuffing the washing machine with clothes. Most of us know the basic regimen of doing laundry, which involves a washing machine, some dirty clothes, a detergent, and a fabric softener. However, different clothes are made of different fabrics, and different fabrics need to be washed and dried in different ways.
We are surrounded by clothes in our living space. Examples are rugs, curtains, bed sheets, quilts, bath towels, and the clothes that we wear. Dust, grease, stains, and sweat are absorbed by these fabrics. And thus, the fabrics become a medium for bacteria and fungus to grow. Moreover, depending on the fabric, some need to be cleaned more frequently. Others can wait for longer periods of time before cleaning. If you know these fine details well, you can not only keep your clothes clean but also can extend their shelf life.
In the detailed infographic below from Love2Laundry, you will get some great tips on what to do and what not to when it comes to washing different clothing. The infographic will also help you understand how frequently you can wash different clothing. Hopefully, this information will help you save energy, time, and money, and provide the correct method to do your laundry.
