In order to help you stay on top of your game and keep your wardrobe in shape, we’ve selected five common mistakes to avoid when hitting the laundromat. No biggie, you’ll thank us later!
1. Never button your shirts before washing them
If you’re a tidiness maniac, you’ll probably want to make sure those buttons are done before throwing your shirt in the washing machine. Unfortunately, this might not be a very good idea: when being washed, garments that are still buttoned will likely detach their threads, which will leave you with no buttons at all. Clearly, you don’t want that.
2. Try not to use too much laundry detergent
Bare in mind that more soap doesn’t go hand in hand with cleaner clothes. Not only does it make no difference to the quality of your washing, using too much detergent could also leave irritants on your garments and therefore cause severe rashes and skin problems.
