Grouping Similar Items
For the best washing results, and to reduce the
possibility of damage to clothing, care should be
taken to sort the clothing into loads that are made up
of similar items.
Mixing different fabric types and/or soil levels can
result in poor wash performance, color transfer,
discoloration, fabric damage or linting. Fabrics should
be sorted into groups as described below.
Sort articles by color. Wash dark clothes together in a
separate load from light colors or whites. Mixing dark
clothes with light clothes can result in dye transfer or
discoloration of the lighter clothes.
Wash heavily soiled clothing together. Washing lightly
soiled clothing in the same load with heavily soiled
clothing could result in poor wash performance for
the lightly soiled clothing.
Delicate articles should not be mixed with heavy
or sturdy fabric types. Washing heavy fabrics in a
delicate load can result in poor wash performance
for the heavy fabrics and possible damage to the
Some fabrics attract and bind lint to them while others
give off lint in the laundry process. Avoid mixing these
lint collectors and lint producers in the same load.
Mixing these fabrics will result in pilling and linting on
the lint collectors. (For example, lint collector—knit
sweater; lint producer—terry cloth towels.)
