Doing laundry is a tedious task that requires time and attention. You might think that all it takes to do laundry is to load the washing machine and choose the appropriate temperature or cycle, however, to really do your laundry right, you need a few fabric cleaning tips under your fingertips!
Keep in mind that the longer a stain remains on your clothes, the harder it is to remove it. So always be sure to tend to stains as soon as possible and remember never to press or iron stained clothes.
Be Ware of Perspiration
Do you know those pesky perspiration marks that seem to never go away? Well, first thing you need to do is try to avoid them. If you fail to do so, soak your stained top in warm water and vinegar followed by coating the stain with a baking soda, salt, and hydrogen peroxide paste. Wash your top with other clothes of similar colors.
Try to Avoid Discoloration
Whenever possible, try to let lotions, deodorants, perfumes, and other toiletries dry before getting dressed. These products may contain ingredients that cause your fabric to lose or change color. Also try to avoid direct contact with sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
Before storing your clothes, make sure that you clean them well and store them in a dry and clean place to avoid fabric discoloration or aging.
