We have collected the top questions that were most searched by people on the internet. Feel very lucky that you have come across this blog as we will be tackling numerous top questions for perfect laundry.

Fond of doing laundry or not, this section will definitely guide you! Read on!

CAN YOU USE DISH SOAP FOR LAUNDRY?

Nope. Don’t put liquid dish soap in your washing machine. Laundry detergent suds very little, and dish soap is designed to get sudsy and foamy.

CAN YOU WASH CLOTHES WITH SHAMPOO?

Only if you are travelling or just washing small one like handkerchiefs. Never put them in the washing machine because there is a chance it will create lots of suds and cause bubbles to overflow from the washer. 

WHAT IS NEEDED FOR LAUNDRY?

If you are a newbie, these are the needed basic materials for you to start.

  • Washing machine (or hand wash if none) 
  • Dryer machine (optional), there is sunlight to help up.
  • Laundry Detergent (liquid or powder)
  • Fabric Softener ( for fragrance or soft effect)
  • Dryer sheets (only if desired)
  • Hangers (if you wish to hung up your clothes after cleaning)
  • Iron and iron board (optional)

WHAT IS DRY WASH?

It is similar to regular home laundering. However, the liquid solvent is used to clean your cloth instead of water and detergent. This formula has little or no water, hence it’s called “dry cleaning”. 

Note that your clothes still get wet, but the liquid solvent used evaporates much more quickly than water.

WHAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO WASH CLOTHES?

For sturdy and dirty clothes, the best setting to use is a regular cycle. If you are to wash lacy and loosely woven fabrics, then opt for the delicate cycle. For white loads, you should use hot water. For the average load, use warm water. Cold water for bright colored fabrics.

SHOULD CLOTHES BE WASHED INSIDE OUT?

It is better to turn clothes inside out, especially when the clothing is prone to fading or odor retention, such as when you wash dark jeans, workout clothes and dark T-shirts. Same goes for socks.

WHY DO YOUR CLOTHES LOOK DIRTY AFTER WASHING?

Sometimes, the water itself is the cause. If you have hard water, which contains mineral deposits, minerals in the water can combine with soap to form a scum. This, in result, causes your laundry to appear dingy and unclean.

CAN YOU WASH TOWELS WITH CLOTHES?

For sanitary purposes, it is better to separate towels from clothing items. Washing towels with clothes could transfer germs and bacteria between items in the machine. 

DOES HAND WASHING CLOTHES PREVENT SHRINKING?

Yes. Either you wash them by hand, or use cold water in the delicate cycle when using the washing machine. 

WHAT DOES BAKING SODA DO IN WASHING CLOTHES?

It neutralizes odors by balancing pH levels and it effectively softens wash water so you can use less detergent or bleach. Thus making it more effective. 

CAN I UNSHRINK CLOTHES?

There are ways, but it is hard. However, you can relax the fibers to stretch them back into their original shape. Most fabric is easier when done with water and baby shampoo. Also, borax and vinegar helps stretch out wool or cashmere.

DO CLOTHES REALLY SHRINK IN THE DRYER?

Yes, it is possible. Different types of fabrics behave differently, heat will shrink most fabrics. Take notice with how botton shirts and denim jeans shrink when in hot or warm water, especially when followed by a high heat drying cycle.
