Laundry. Easy, right? Maybe not so much. You could be making laundry mistakes that you aren’t even aware of and we are help you correct them.
When it comes to laundry, there can be too much of a good thing. You might think extra detergent means extra-clean clothes, but that’s not the case. Using too much detergent may lead to over-sudsing, which can leave residue on your clothes and wreak havoc on your washing machine. Here are some of the mistakes you are probably making during laundry:
Mistake 1: Rubbing Stains Enragedly.
You are making the stain worse. Instead, treat the stain as soon as you can - gently and methodically; the less time that elapses, the more success you’ll have. Dab, rather than rub, working from the outside in to keep the stain contained.
