PREPARATION BEFORE WASHING CLOTHES

Please follow these steps carefully to avoid trouble with the washing machine and damaging your clothing.


Washing Considerations

• New clothes can leach colour onto other clothing items, particularly whites. Consider washing these bright colours separately.

• Stained clothing should be treated with a stain remover prior to washing.

• Temperature sensitive clothes should be washed in accordance with their care direction label. Otherwise distortion and / or changes in colour can occur.

• Never allow washing to sit in the washing machine for a long period of time – particularly when wet. Clothes can become mouldy and develop an odour.

• Certain clothing cannot be washed in a machine - care directions state dry cleaning or hand washing required.

• Wrinkle style clothes, embossed clothes or resin clothes may become distorted when immersed in water.

• Avoid washing clothes without care direction labels in the washing machine to be safe.

• Always remove all items from clothing pockets as hard items can cause damage to the washing machine.

• Try to wash clothing colours and sizes in like loads as this will improve the washing effectiveness and results.

• Close all clothing zips and ensure all buttons are fastened securely.

• Delicate items such as bras, handkerchiefs and ties should be washed within a special washing bag to prevent damage to themselves and other clothes.

• Washing a large or heavy single item such as a towel or jacket can cause the washing machine to become unbalanced during the spin cycle. It is recommended to add more clothing items to help the machine balance.

• Try to remove any hair, dust and stains from clothing prior to washing.

• Clothing that gets easily “fuzzed” or that loses fibres easily should be washed separately.

• Black clothing items should be washed separately.

• Do not wash waterproof materials within the washing machine.


Pay Attention to Detergents

• Only use suitable front load washing machine detergents with this washing machine – powder and liquid detergents only.

• Only ever use the recommended quantity of detergent as per the manufacturer guidelines as an excessive quantity can cause excessive bubbles and overflow to occur. It can also result in detergent residue remaining on the clothing after the completion of the wash cycle.
