4 Laundry Mistakes You MUST Avoid!! ๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘—

Today, Iโ€™m sharing four mistakes you might be making with your laundry, that will damage your clothes in the long run.

Theyโ€™re really common things that I used to do myself. That is, until I realized the damage I was doing.

Drying sportswear

1. Putting sports clothes in the dryer

Athletic clothes contain lycra for flexibility and fit. This can break down under too much heat.

Line dry them whenever you can. And if you need something in a hurry, use the โ€œno heatโ€ setting on the dryer.

2. Mixing towels and clothes in a load

Towels absorb a lot more water than clothes, so they prevent your clothes from being thoroughly washed.

They also take a lot longer to dry, so you risk overheating and damaging your clothes.

3. Not flipping graphic tees

Always turn any decorated garment inside out before washing or drying. 

In the case of printed graphics, it helps protect them from cracking and breakage of the graphic over time, and from rubbing against other clothes in the machine.

4. Overfilling your machine

Trying to cram too many clothes into the machine at once prevents the water and detergent from circulating as they need to.

This results in clothes that arenโ€™t properly cleaned!

In the dryer, circulation is equally important if you want your clothes to dry evenly.
