full can your washing machine be?
We have all done
loads of laundry where we we are trying to cram in those last
few pieces of clothing so we don't need to do in entire new
load of laundry or wait until the next laundry day. But did
you realize that when you cram your washing machine full it
actually will make more work in the end?
When you stuff
your washing machine full, there isn't enough room for the
laundry to move around to get clean, as well as for the laundry
detergent to distribute properly, especially if you are using
powdered laundry detergent. This is what causes you to end
up with clumps of powder on your laundry as well as those
powdered laundry detergent stains. It simply because there
wasn't enough room for the water to break down the powdered
laundry detergent amongst the clothes.
So next time you're
tempted to overstuffed your washing machine, remember that
you do you need to leave a little bit room to allow for the
agitation to actually get the clothes clean. Otherwise you
end up with clothes that just aren't clean.
Do you have a front
loading wash machine? Yes you can fill it right to the top,
just don't cram the clothes in to stuff as many pieces of
clothing as possible.
