When you wash white clothes, there's one laundry rule you should never break: Always wash white laundry separately.
I know, I know. You're in a rush and sending the whole load through a cold-water wash is a lot quicker. Sounds good in theory.
In real life? Not so much. The all-in-one routine usually results in whites emerging from the dryer looking gray, yellow, or worse - with a lovely tie-dye effect.
Unless that's the look you're going for, take the time protect your white clothing investment from such unwanted colorful intermingling. Your efforts will pay off in the long run with cleaner, whiter whites that will last longer in your wardrobe lineup.
These laundry tips for washing whites can help.
2. Wash white clothes separately from lights and darks.
White clothes should always get the separate treatment - away from light and dark clothes.
Even older non-white clothes can transfer color, or just make the white clothes look gray and dingy. From there:
It pays to know your fibers when choosing the wash water temperature. Always choose "cold" for the rinse-water temperature. It saves energy and is just as effective. Laundry tips for washing white clothes by fabric:
Once you've selected the right water temperature, turn on the machine and add detergent and laundry boosters, such as color-safe bleach, bleach, and/or fabric softener (for fluffier white clothes).
If you don't have a special dispenser for the boosters, just pour them into the wash water once the machine is filled.
If your white laundry is heavily soiled, if you're washing a large load, or if you're using cold water, add extra detergent.
Dump in the white laundry. If you have to stuff them in, you've got too much stuff to stuff in one load. The machine should be no more more than two-thirds full. The clothes need to tumble around to get clean. Unsure?
Watch for rollover of small items such as socks when the machine is washing. They should sink and reappear later. If they don't, they're too cramped for their own good. And yours.
After your whites have been washed, check for any remaining stains you can see. Re-wash if needed. If you dry stained clothes in the dryer, the heat will set the stains.
Keep in mind that it's best to dry loads of laundry that are similar in fiber content and weight
Leave clothes in the dryer just long enough to remove wrinkles and moisture. Some fabrics, such as Spandex and linen, will be damaged or shrink when dried with too much heat.
