FOR WASHING AND DRYING
Follow these recommendations
help save on utility bills and prolong
the life of your garments.
• Close zippers, snaps, and hooks to
avoid snagging other items. Remove
heat-sensitive trim that can be damaged
by drying. Tie strings and sashes so
they wilt not tangle. Mend tears, loose
hems, and seams.
• Check garments for spots and stains
left after washing. Do not tumble these
items. Heat may permanently set stains.
• Check pockets before washing or
drying. Sharp or metal objects can
damage your washer interior or dryer
drum. Do not lay these objects on your
laundry center; they can damage the
finish. Turn pockets of heavy items
inside out for even drying.
• Turn synthetic knits inside out before
washing to avoid pilling.
• Stained or wet garments should be
washed promptly for best results.
• Place small items such as baby socks
or hankies in laundry bag for easier
• Articles to be ironed should be removed
from the dryer while still slightly damp.
• Separate heavily soiled items from
lightly soiled ones, even if they
would normally be washed together.
Separate lint givers (towels, chenille)
from lint takers (corduroy, synthetics,
permanent press). When possible,
turn lint givers inside out.
• Separate dark colors from light colors,
colorfast items from non-colorfast items.
• Sort by fabric and construction
(sturdy cottons, knits, delicate items).
