CAUSES/SOLUTIONS
Follow manufacturer's
product directions
carefully.
Dilute fabric softener
before adding to
the final rinse.
Use enough detergent
to hold soil in the
wash water until it drains away. Undrained
soil can stick to outer tub of the washer and
cause greasy spots with next load.
Soiled items can stain other items in the
load. They can also leave stains on the
dryer drum that can be picked up by items
in later loads. Dryer heat may permanently
set these stains.
Clean lint screen. (See page 10.)
Sort lint-givers
(bath towels, etc.) from lint-
takers (synthetics,
permanent
press).
Use fabric softener
in the washer's
final
rinse. Use correct dryer settings for fabric.
Overdrying
synthetics
can cause lint-
attracting
static electricity.
Dry smaller loads. When items can't tumble
freely, air is unable to carry lint to lint
screen.
Empty pockets carefully.
A small scrap of
paper can cause a lot of lint.
Use enough detergent
to hold the lint in the
water until it drains away. Base detergent
amount on water hardness
and soil in wash
load.
Pilling (surface fuzz) is caused by normal
wear and laundering.
Pills do not break
away easily from the fabric and can often
collect lint. Synthetic
fabrics are more likely
to pill than others, especially
at neckbands,
elbows and knees.
