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, the first thing we think of is stuffing the washing machine with clothes. Most of us very well know the basic aspect of doing laundry, which involves a washing machine, some dirty clothes, a detergent, and a fabric softener, but not many of us realize that the different clothes we are stuffing into the washing machine together are made of different fabric. Hence each type of fabric needs to be taken care of in a specific way.
I think we should add this paragraph below the first paragraph: We are surrounded by clothes in our living space in the form of rugs, curtains, bed sheets, quilts, bath towels, the clothes that we wear inside and outside our homes. The dust, grease, stains, and sweat that these cloths absorb from our bodies and living space will become a medium for bacteria and fungus to grow. Hence depending on the fabric that they are crafted from, some need to be cleaned more frequently, while others can wait it out for some 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.
