No matter how much one spends on clothes, it is undeniable that what you wear reflects a part of your personality, sometimes people even put sentimental value on a lucky shirt or the dress they wore on the first date. Thus, there is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing your favorite garment shrink or lose its color in the wash.

Fear not, as there are smart laundry practices you can do to keep them looking new every time you do your laundry. Plus, they no longer require much time and effort.

1. Set the correct temperature setting

Using the right temperature when doing your laundry is essential—a high water temperature can remove the toughest of stains and kill bacteria but it can also damage certain types of fabric, while a low temperature can save energy but may not clean your clothes as thoroughly. This is why many people prefer to mix both because warm water has the right amount of cleaning power while preventing your clothes from shrinking and fading.

2. Choose your wash cycle accordingly 

A washer can usually perform one or more wash cycles so you should choose what best fits your load. While the normal cycle is used typically, you must also learn how to change your cycle setting to permanent press or delicate specially when your load contains different stains and fabric types.

There are modern automatic washers that offer advanced options to help you out—whether you want to pick the fastest wash cycle or one that offers deep clean, achieve a more efficient wash by selecting the right cycle for your needs.

3. Use the right amount of detergent 

A common misconception is that the more detergent you use, the cleaner your clothes will be. However, too much detergent can actually damage clothes over time, while too little can leave newly washed clothes dirty and dull. This is why it is necessary to use the right amount of detergent on your laundry by considering the size of your wash load and how dirty they are.

Good thing Whirlpool introduced the BloomWash InverterPlus washer to help make laundry easier and even more efficient for everyone.
