Notes to My Son, Thoughts on Washing Your Clothes

Step one

Sorting out your laundry

To keep up to scratch with your laundry and ensuring that a laundry mountain is avoided in your room, try to do your washing often. If you produce a lot of washing, then this might have to be every day. Try not to leave your clothes that require washing, hiding in obscure places around the house, such as in the kitchen and in the hallway.

Sort your washing into colours

Put the whites together with the whites, not with the blacks, greys or the blues. This action is required to make sure that colour runs are avoided and your white shirt does not turn pink. Oh and please do a full load and try not to run the washing machine for just one pair of boxer shorts! You’re not paying for the electricity!

Empty the pockets and fasten any zips

Check all the pockets of your clothes. This is because you may discover coins, chewing gum, till receipts, lighters and all sorts of other stuff that needs to be removed from pockets, before putting into the washing machine. Yes! I know it’s true that I once put an underwired bra in the wash, with the unfortunate results that one of the wires came loose and basically got stuck in the pump and broke the washing machine, but I believe that was a one off only occasion and never to be repeated again.

Step two

After your washing is completed

When your washing is finished, it is important to open the washing machine door and empty the nice clean washing into a basket or other suitable receptacle. Do not leave the washing in the machine for days and wonder why it’s still there. No! Unfortunately Mary Poppins is not lying in wait to help out. Also if you do not take you’re washing out on the same day, then your washing will likely begin to smell very musty and damp and you will then have to repeat the whole wash process again.

Once the washing has made it from the machine into the basket, ensure it is put to dry immediately. Drying can be accomplished by hanging clothes outside or drying indoors on airers or use the tumble drier. In every situation clothes do need to be dried and not left to dry nonchalantly in the washing basket or the washing will have to be done again!

The whole procedure should really be a simple process to follow and I hope you will shortly be able to see the results and benefits of following the above advice
