Before
Washing...
Prepare
Wash
Load
Empty Pockets and Cuffs
Make sure all pockets are empty
and turn them inside out. One
bobby pin, metal or plastic toy,
nail or sharp object in a load can
catch laundry and
cause
tears.
Facial tissue left in a pocket will
produce extreme "lint". A crayon
or lipstick in a wash load may
cause stains that cannot
be
removed.
Roll down cuffs and
shake out grass,
sand, and
gravel.
Mend Rips and Tears
Little holes can become bigger
in
the washer.
Mend holes and tears
before placing garments
in the
washer.
Close Zipper and Fasten Hooks
These can catch
on
garments
in a
wash load and tear
them.
Tie
belts and
sashes
so they won't
wind
around
clothes.
Remove
Nonwashable
Trim
Check for colorfastness
too, by
squeezing a portion of
garment
in
warm or
hot sudsy
water. If the
color bleeds or runs,
wash
the
item separately
in cold water.

Sort By Type and Amount
of
Soil
Children's
play clothes, as well
as work clothes, will need
extra
treatment. Lightly soiled
clothes can
become dingy
if
washed with
heavily soiled
items.
Sort Lint
"Shedders"
From
Lint
"Receivers"
Some fabrics
attract
lint and
should not be washed with lint-
shedding
loads. Lint shedders
are cottons, terry towels,
chenille bedspreads,
rugs, and
clothes which have been
heavily
bleached.
Lint receivers
are synthetics,
permanent
or
durable
press,
knits (including
socks),
corduroy,
and other smooth
fabrics.
Pretreat
Pretreat shirt collars and cuffs
with a
pre-wash
product
or
liquid
detergent
when placing them in
the washer. Before washing,
treat
special stains with bar soap, liquid
detergent
or a paste of water and
granular detergent.
Use a pretreat
soil and stain remover.
