LAUNDRY TiPS
Preparing clothesfor washing
Follow these recommendations
to help you prolong the life of
your garments.
[]
Use only High Efficiency detergents.
The package
for this
type of detergent
will be marked "HE" or "High Efficiency."
This wash system, along with less water, will create too
much sudsing with a regular non-HE detergent.
Using regular
detergent
will likely result in washer errors, longer cycle
times and reduced rinsing performance.
It may also result
in component
failures and noticeable
mold or mildew. HE
detergents
are made to produce
the right amount of suds for
the best performance.
Follow the manufacturer's
instructions
to determine
the amount of detergent to use.
Sorling
[]
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
noncolorfast
items.
[]
Sort by fabric and construction
(sturdy cottons,
knits,
delicate items).
Unloading
[]
Remove clothes from washer after the cycle is completed.
Metal objects
such as zippers,
snaps, and buckles may rust if
left in the washer basket for a long time.
[]
When unloading
garments,
occasionally
check under the
rubber rim at the front of the tub for small items.
[]
Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
Close zippers, snaps, and hooks to avoid snagging
other
items. Remove pins, buckles, and other hard objects to avoid
scratching
the washer interior. Remove non-washable
trim
and ornaments.
[]
Empty pockets
and turn them inside-out.
[]
Turn down cuffs; brush away lint and dirt.
[]
Turn synthetic
knits inside-out
to avoid pilling.
[]
Tie strings and sashes so they will not tangle.
[]
Mend tears, loose hems, and seams.
[]
Treat spots and stains.
[]
Stained or wet garments
should be washed promptly
for best
results.
[]
[]
Mix large and small items, avoid washing single items, and
load evenly.
Wash small items, such as infant socks, in a mesh garment
bags. To create a balanced
load it is recommend
that more
than one garment bag be used, and that each garment bag
be filled with equal amounts of material.
NOTE: If you are washing only small items, it is recommend
that more than one mesh garment bag be used, and that
each garment bag be filled with equal amounts
of material.
