  1. Sort Clothes Properly: Sorting clothes by color and fabric type before washing helps prevent color bleeding and damage.

  2. Pre-treat Stains: Address stains promptly by pre-treating them with stain removers or a mixture of detergent and water before washing.

  3. Use the Right Water Temperature: Different fabrics require different water temperatures. Hot water is best for whites and heavily soiled items, while cold water helps preserve colors and prevent shrinkage.

  4. Choose the Right Detergent: Select a detergent suitable for your clothes and washing machine. Consider using a gentle detergent for delicate fabrics.

  5. Don't Overload the Washer: Overloading the washer can lead to inefficient cleaning and increased wear on your clothes. Ask an attendant for recommendations on load size.

  6. Use Vinegar as a Fabric Softener: Vinegar can be used as a natural fabric softener, helping to remove detergent residue and leaving clothes feeling soft and fresh.

  7. Opt for Air Drying: Air drying is gentler on clothes compared to using a dryer. Hang clothes outside on a clothesline or indoors on a drying rack to save energy and extend the life of your garments.

  8. Clean Your Washing Machine Regularly: To ensure optimal performance and prevent odors, clean your washing machine regularly by running a cycle with vinegar or a washing machine cleaner. Wash Works has Ozone that cleans the machines as well as the clothes with each wash.

  9. Fold Clothes Properly: Proper folding techniques can help prevent wrinkles and keep your clothes looking neat and tidy. Take the time to fold clothes correctly before storing them.

  10. Read Care Labels: Always check the care labels on your clothes for specific washing instructions. Following these guidelines can help prevent damage and prolong the life of your garments.
