Helpful Dos & Don'ts of Good Laundry Care, Atlanta, Georgia

Few experiences are as depressing as pulling your favorite dress or pair of pants out of the wash only to find they’ve been hopelessly stretched out or snagged on something. While any fabric will degrade over time, the right laundry care approach can prevent some of the worst damage and keep your clothes looking their best for years to come. Below are a few key dos and don’ts of laundry care.

Do

Turn Everything Inside Out

Turning delicate clothes inside out will protect the surface from friction and the heat of the dryer, which is helpful if the fabric is prone to pilling. It will also keep belt loops, buttons, and minor imperfections from getting caught on other clothing.

Use the Delicate Cycle

Don’t

Hang Wet Sweaters

Keeping your sweaters out of the dryer is a great idea, especially for wool or other fabrics that might shrink. However, hanging them up to dry will stretch them out, especially in the shoulder area. For best results, lay them out on a towel to dry, then fold them for storage.

Mix Delicate & Heavy Fabrics

Jeans, towels, and jackets tend to be very abrasive, which can cause serious piling problems for softer, more delicate fabrics. Separating clothing according to color and fabric type is one of the most important steps in good laundry care.
