Washing tips and hints
Sorting your laundry: Sort your laundry according to the following characteristics:
•Type of fabric care label symbol: Sort laundry into cottons, mixed fibers, synthetics, silks, wools and rayon.
•Colour: Divide whites and colours. Wash new, coloured items separately.
•Size: Placing items of different sizes in the same load will improve the washing action.
•Sensitivity: Wash delicate items separately, using the Delicate wash program for pure new wool, curtains and silk articles. Check the labels on the items you are washing or refer to the fabric care chart in the appendix.
Emptying pockets: Coins, safety pins and similar items can damage linen, the washing machine drum, and the water tank.
Securing fasteners: Close zippers and fasten buttons or hooks; loose belts or ribbons should be tied together.
Determining load capacity: Do not overload the washing machine or your laundry may not wash properly. Use the chart below to determine the load capacity for the type of laundry you are washing.
Detergent tips: The type of detergent you should use is based on the type of fabric (Cotton, Synthetic, Delicate items) colour, wash temperature, degree and type of soiling. Always use "low suds" laundry soap, which is designed for automatic washing machines.
When determining the detergent quantity, it’s necessary to consider recommendations of the detergent manufacturer, indicated on the package, as well as weight, type of laundry, it’s fouling factor and water hardness in your region.
