Facts About Cleaning Your Laundry: Learning How
I'm not going to tell you one magic correct method to do your laundry here. I'm going to tell you how the processes and materials of cleaning clothes work, so you can decide for yourself how you want to clean your clothes.
First you should read about the contents of an average laundry detergent so you can get an understanding of what laundry detergent actually does. This is important so you can better understand how the process works.
Then you'll need to read about liquid fabric softeners - what they do, how they do it, and why you don't want to be without one. You'll also find a little information about some specific brands.
Next you can read about the differences between front loading and top loading washers. This should help you make a decision if you get to decide which type you want to use, or even better, which type you want to own. You should read this section even if you have no choice at the moment, because it will help you understand future options.
It's very important that you learn about selecting correct water temperature before you wash your laundry.
You may be curious about how to deal with some specific stains.
Most dryers do a great job. However, you can save energy and dry your clothes faster if you also use a spin dryer.
Dying to know what I chose out of all of these options? I'll tell you if you really want to know.
