Adjust the dryer settings

A major reason why clothes shrink is because of the heat. Dry your clothes at lower temperatures and avoid heavy load settings.

If clothing shrinks in the wash

Spread the item out to its original size on an ironing board. Use dress pins to hold the size and shape. Then, use an iron to steam it and leave it to dry.

Know the functions of your machine

An efficient wash is only possible if you know your machine well. Always thoroughly read up the user manual and familiarise yourself with the functions when you buy a new machine.

Wash in cold water whenever possible

Use hot water only to remove tough stains. For regular laundry, always use cold water. It’s easier on the clothes and protects their newness and shine.

Don’t overload your washer

Clothes need to swim freely in water for the stains and dirt to be scrubbed out. The more the clothes, the lesser the exposure to water and detergent.

Don’t wash everything together

Some fabrics run color even after many washes. Always best to separate your coloured clothes from whites before you do your laundry.
