SAVE MONEY ON YOUR LAUNDRY : PICK THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE

Some people like to wash everything with hot water, but is it really necessary? Mr Washy washed his jumper above 40 degrees and it came out to be the size for a child. Well done Mr Washy! We usually wash our clothes in cold water because that preserves your clothes. We only soak our clothes in washing detergent to make the enzymes in the detergent work harder when the clothes are heavily soiled.

HERE ARE SOME INSTRUCTIONS GOOD TO KNOW

WHEN TO USE HOT WATER
For most clothing the hotter the water, the cleaner the clothing will be. Most linens and white clothing are washed in hot water to remove germs and heavy soil. However, many of our clothes won't come out looking very nice if they are washed in hot water. Hot water tends to make some clothing shrink, wrinkle and fade.

WHEN TO USE WARM WATER
For most people the majority of their laundry is washed with warm water. Warm water is actually a mix of hot and cold. Some machines mix the hot and cold water 50-50, although newer machines mix 60-40. Warm water is usually the best choice for permanent press and jeans. It allows good cleaning action without as much fading, wrinkling and shrinking.

WHEN TO USE COLD WATER
Cold water is usually used for delicate items, or items with instructions to be washed in cold water. If your cold water items are heavily soiled or dirty, you need to be especially diligent about checking and pre-treating for stains. You may also have to wash the items for longer, or allow them to soak before washing if they are heavily soiled.
