  4. Prevents your clothes from shrinking

  5. Maintains the blue-ness of your jeans

  6. Keeps your clothing colour vibrant

  7. Modern detergents work well at low temperatures

  8. It’s eco-friendly 


how to do it: 

  1. Same drill as normal, separate your lights & darks

  2. Sort by fabric (eg: wash delicates separately from your towels)

  3. Choose the right cycle according to your fabric (eg: cotton, silk, etc.)

  4. Add detergent

  5. Set the machine to 30 degrees and the highest possible spin cycle for less dry time*

  6. Let your clothes air dry instead of using the dryer

*make sure you read the label on your clothes to see the highest spin cycle you can use


#ProTIP: 

For clothing with heavy stains, pre-treat it by applying liquid detergent directly to the stain and leave it for a few minutes before placing it in the washing machine
