prepare your wash
To keep your family’s clothes looking great make sure you properly sort the clothes before you wash them. Start by separating the different types of fabric. Delicate fabrics require a gentle cycle compared to heavier fabrics. Then separate whites from colours, and pastels from dark colours as darker dyes may run.
Dirt can travel from one garment to another so wash heavily soiled garments separately. Remember to check pockets! You never know what kind of treasures kids keep in there.
Pre-treat if needed
Accidents happen all the time so the best thing to do when you get a stain is to act fast! Rinse stains in cool water and pre-treat them before they have a chance to set. Generally for unknown stains avoid hot water as it can set some stains. Do not rub stains, rubbing can push the stain further into the fabric.
