n Caring before washing
1. Care Labels
Look for a care label on your clothes. This will tell you about the fabric content of your
garment and how it should be washed.
To get the best results, Sort clothes into loads that can be washed with the same wash cycle.
Water temperature and spin speed and different fabrics need to be washed in different ways.
Always sort dark colors from pale colors and whites. Wash separately as dye and lint
transfer can occur causing discoloration of white etc. If possible, do not wash heavily
soiled items with lightly soiled one.
Soil (Heavy, Normal, Light)
Color (White, Lights, Darks)
Lint (Lint producers, Collectors)
3. Caring before loading
n Combine large and small items in a load. Load large items first. Large items should not be more
than half the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add one or two similar items.
Separate clothes according to amount of soil.
Separate white fabrics from colored fabrics.

• Check all pockets to make sure
that they are empty. Items such as
nails, hair clip, matches, pens,
coins and keys can damage both
your washer and your clothes.
• Close zippers, hooks and strings to
make sure that these items don't
snag on other clothes.
• Pre treat dirt and stains by brushing
a little detergent dissolved in water
onto stains like collars and cuffs to
help shift dirt.
