Common Laundry Mistakes Everyone Makes

Posted on September 28, 2018 in Always There for You with 7 Comments


Laundry is pretty simple, isn’t it? All you have to do is fill the washing machine with water, add detergent, add the clothes to the washing machine and push that button, right?

Yes, but you’ve probably made a couple of these mistakes while doing your laundry before now:

1. Not looking at the washing instructions

Every piece of clothing comes with specific instructions on the best way to wash them. Some clothes are to be washed inside out, some others need to be washed only with similar colours. Ignoring the washing instructions can negatively affect your clothes.

2. Leaving the zippers unzipped

The zippers can hook and damage lightweight clothes that are being washed together.

3. Using too much detergent

Using a lot of detergent might create a lot of foamy suds that look great, but it doesn’t quite mean that your clothes will come out cleaner. The extra suds will make your washing machine work even harder to rinse them off.

4. Washing Clothes That Are Still Buttoned Up

It might seem pretty easy to just toss those buttoned shirts in the wash, but washing shirts without unbuttoning them can make the buttonholes wider and affect the fit over time.

5. Washing small laundry loads

It might seem more efficient to you, but washing smaller loads makes you use up more energy than washing in one big load because you use the same amount of energy regardless of the size of your clothing.

Energy Saving Tip

Pile up your laundry so that you only do your laundry once or twice in a week instead of every other day.

      Hello Mark!
      There are shipping bolts installed at the factory to prevent the washer’s tub from moving during shipping. You must remove the shipping bolts to prevent excessive vibration during operation. The specific location and number of shipping bolts varies by model, but is always on the back of the washer. Please check the User manual for your model for the exact location of the shipping bolts.
