Doing the laundry is probably one of the least favourite chores in any household. We’re looking at ways to make laundry day – and all the nitty-gritty that goes with it – a whole lot easier to handle. Unfortunately, the world is yet to automate folding and packing away fresh laundry, so that’s something your appliances can’t help you with – yet.
So, let’s look at how you can make washing and drying your clothes easier than ever before with our helpful tips and tricks.
- Get on top of stains
When it comes to stains, the most important thing to remember is to deal with them ASAP. Don’t leave them languishing in the laundry bin. If you’re fast, you’ll find that most stains can be easily removed using household items that won’t break the bank, but you may need to tackle different stains using different methods. Try toothpaste and an old toothpaste on grass stains, and shampoo on stained collars and oil stains.
Pro tip: cold water is ideal for removing stains from blood and sweat.
- Know your machine settings
To look after and preserve your clothes, you need to know which machine settings work best for different items of clothing. This can be tricky, which is why the LG Vivace Washing Machine is the ultimate laundry day partner. Not only can it sense the fabrics in the load, but it also senses the weight of the load using AI DD™ and selects the washing patterns that work best for each individual load. It really takes the guesswork out of choosing those settings.
And the Inverter Direct Drive delivers a better performance and energy consumption.
- Harness the power of improved hygiene
Of course, your washing machine is supposed to clean your clothes, but how clean are they really? You need a very hot cycle for sanitising bedding, clothing and towels, especially when a loved one has been sick or if you’re washing baby clothes. Taking this even further, the LG Vivace Washing Machine uses LG Steam™ technology which enables it to eliminate 99.9% of allergens that can cause allergy or respiratory issues.
- Air dry versus tumble dry
Most washing machines end the load on a spin cycle which removes a lot of the water from your clothes, but this doesn’t dry your clothes entirely. A more efficient spin cycle will remove more water though, and cut your drying time. When choosing the best way to complete the drying process, think about what you need most. If you’re pressed for time or the weather isn’t ideal, the tumble dryer is your best bet. Hanging your clothes out to dry is also an eco-friendly option if you’ve got time to spare. Adjust your drying method based on what your clothes need and your preferences.
When in doubt, keep it simple. Washing your clothes doesn’t need to be a time consuming, overly complicated chore, especially if you have the right kind of washing machine in your corner!
