1. Always read the directions on the garment label before you begin.
  2. Wash dirty clothes as soon as you can – the longer you leave them, the more difficult a stain will be to remove.
  3. Be careful not to overload the washing machine – this helps reduce bobbling and pilling.
  4. Use the recommended amount of detergent for the type of load.
  5. Keep the shape of cardigans by buttoning up before washing.
  6. Save money and help the environment by washing at low temperatures.
  7. Wash garments with similar washing instructions together, and similar colours together.
  8. Empty the fluff filter regularly on washing machines and tumble dryers.
