HINTS AND TIPS
RULES FOR SEPARATING LAUNDRY
• Fabric type / indications on label (cotton, mixed fibres, synthetic,
wool, handwash items)

coloured items separately)
• Size (wash items of different sizes in the same load to improve
washing efficacy and weight distribution in the drum)
• Delicates (place small items – such as nylon stockings – and
garments with clasps – such as braziers – in a laundry bag or in a
pillow case with a zip).
• Objects such as coins or safety pins can damage laundry and the
washer dryer drum.
