Laundry 101 – Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Clothes Looking Great!
-Sort clothes by color and type of material. To keep clothes from getting dingy and worn out too quickly keep lights with lights, darks with darks. Also, Keep cotton material with cotton and denim with denim.
-Remove buckles if possible, zip zippers, close snaps and hooks, and secure velcro to prevent snags.
-Empty pockets and turn them inside out, and unroll cuffs and tie strings or ribbons to prevent tangling.
-Turn delicate items inside out to prevent piling and snagging – sweaters, and cotton T-shirts, too!
-Place delicate items like lingerie and fine knitwear in zippered mesh bags.
-Treat stains before washing, and always make sure stains have been removed before putting items in the dryer. The heat can set stains into fabric making it more difficult to remove.
-The correct washer settings are important to making sure your clothes stay looking great!
-The Regular cycle is best for sturdy and dirty clothes.
-Permanent press setting is best for the average load.
-Use hot water for white loads, warm water for the average load, and cold water for bright colors.
-Use a quality detergent ensures your clothes remain looking great! Tide Pods with Downy* make Laundry a no-brainer with 4-in-1 technology, plus Downy helps to protect your clothes from overwashing.

-Dryer heat can damage fabric over time, so air drying is a great option when possible. Instead, line dry clothing outside, or indoors on a drying rack.
-If you must dry, use the best setting for your clothes by reading the tags on garments.
-Permanent press setting has a cool-down cycle at the end to reduce wrinkling. On air fluff, the dryer circulates air but adds no heat – good for freshening pillows and reviving clothes that have been packed away.
