Looking for a way to escape from ironing? Wanna avoid clothes from wrinkling while washing? Well, you’re in the right place!
This blog will explain how creases and wrinkles happen, and what you can do to prevent them.
Washers move around clothes as they agitate and spin. During the spin cycle, clothes are pushed against the wash basket to extract as much water as possible from what is being washed. This can cause some wrinkling in clothing.
Improper sorting of the load (i.e. loading in large quantity, heavy clothes with lightweight clothes, delicate materials).
– Too many clothes in the washer.
– Use of incorrect drying and washing cycles.
– Incorrect water level during the washing cycles.
– Washing repeatedly in water which is too hard for fabric.
– Accumulations of lime-scale due to the usage of carbonate detergents.
– Not using fabric softener.
– Leaving clothes in the dryer even after tumbling stops.
– Dumping too many items in the dryer.
– Putting very few items in the dryer.
So, how to avoid Wrinkles while washing?
Remember the following tips to prevent wrinkles.
- Avoid laundering with heavy permanent press items, such as work clothes, with lighter permanent press clothes, such as shirts or blouses.
- Do not wash permanent press clothes with ordinary clothes such as towels, bed linens, etc.
- Clothes must have room to move freely. Permanent press loads should always be smaller than regular loads, and no more than medium loads.
- Use Full water fill for medium load, Medium fill for small loads.
- Use Permanent Press Wash Cycles. This cycle provides a cool down rinse to minimize wrinkling.
- Non-phosphate detergent must be used to avoid the use of a high-carbonate detergent (high carbonate would be in the 7% range).
- Minimize wrinkling by using fabric softener properly.
