What could be simpler than throwing things in the washer and start the laundry?
But even as simple as that sounds there are secrets that will help improve the quality
of the wash, preserve clothes and prevent the washing machine from breakdowns.
Tip # 1:
Never load the entire thing in one heap. Sort big and small things, and then load
one and then the other. This will help maintain the proper balance in the drum,
and thus avoid machine vibration and poor extraction.
Tip # 2:
To avoid problems with color its best to sort the load particularly in this order:
first white, and then light, then blue and green, and finally red.
Tip # 3:
Protect the discharge pump. To do this, carefully check all pockets before washing
and clean them from small items and lint.
Tip # 4:
If you don’t want your color lost on your garments do not use bleach.
Tip # 5:
Count the quantity of detergent strictly as instructed. The over use of detergent
harms the machine, and your clothes.
Tip # 6:
Regularly clear the tank in your washing machine, to avoid interruption to the drain
and prolong the machines life.
Tip # 7:
Check to make sure there are no dangling buttons on your clothes. If there are,
cut them off, and then sew them back. Button clasps, and close the zippers to protect
the drum from damage.
Tip # 8:
It’s also a good idea to turn the clothes inside out, to save them from the rapid
wear and loss of color.
Tip # 9:
Be sure to follow the recommended wash cycles for each type of linen. For silk and
wool about 500 revolutions is recommended, about 800 for the bulkier clothes, and
more than 1000 revolutions for towels, sheets, etc.
Tip # 10:
Try to maintain a normal level of load. It is better to put less linen, than put
too much and cause failures on the washing machine.
