5 Things You Should Know About Co Washing

Co-washing is a big business now. The reason for this is that so many people are looking to save money and do everything they can to be more responsible with their homes. It is also a growing trend because it is environmentally friendly. One of the biggest benefits of washing is that your clothes will last longer, smell better, and look cleaner and brighter than ever before. What you should know about washing is that there are a right way and a wrong way to do it.

The first thing you should know about co cleaning is that you should only use the top layer of your detergent. This is usually called the base or the primary ingredient in your detergent. This is the kind of detergent that you use to wash your hands, your clothing, your dishes, your hair, etc... and it should never be used on the bottoms of your clothing like you do with your glass.

When you pour out the remaining detergent from your tub or container onto the clothes and hang them to dry you will notice that some will absorb into the fibers and some won't. The detergent that you use with your glass will absorb right through and it will leave behind a residue that you will have to clean up. You want to avoid this at all costs. What you should do instead is make sure you only use the very top layer of your detergent, which is the base.

After you have washed your clothing it will not come out as clean as it did when it was first washed. The reason for this is because some of that residue builds upon the fabric. If you allow it to sit long enough you might find your clothes shrinking in size. If it does shrink then you will probably have to rewash it. This is not generally a problem unless it's in an area that you and the rest of your family often go to.

Some people wonder if using hot water to wash their detergent will damage it. The fact is that while most fabric types will suffer from mildew damage over time, those with special treatments such as cotton will be damaged more severely. Use hot water for no longer than fifteen seconds on cotton fabrics. Cotton will shrink a fair bit but it will still be fine in most cases.

Some people are concerned that they may not be able to effectively reuse their detergent. This is not the case in most cases. If you use the correct detergent and hot water you can easily re-use most of what you have and the detergent will last for many years to come. Some manufacturers even recommend that you do not reuse some detergent if you can help it. They say that doing so will extend the life of the product but it isn't likely that they would replace it in their catalogs.

There are two ways to clean your clothing when you are doing a load in the washer. If you do not have any hot water you can use cold water in the top-loading cycle and then follow it up with hot water. You can also pour a little bit of cold into the top-loading and then have hot water goes to the bottom. The important thing is that you do rinse your detergent out after each load. If you leave it anywhere it can get washed down into the bottom and then some of it will end up back onto the laundry mat.

As you can see there are a few things that you should know about co-washing. You can save money by doing your laundry at home and not at the laundromat. You will want to make sure that you have enough detergent to go around when you are doing a load. It is also a good idea to set your heating accordingly so that it does not get too hot while you are washing your clothes.
