Wash and Dry Advice for Clothing
So obviously I demanded my mom replace what she so savagely destroyed to which she responded "Fuck off, I paid for everything else in your closet".
Only use COLD water! Seriously, the coldest setting available. I will sometimes use warm water for white clothing/bedding I want to keep crispy and bright but never for anything I really care about.
Only HANG/AIR DRY! Heat is the enemy! If you don't want your shit to fade and/or shrink, don't use any heat at all. I will use low heat on clothes I wear around the house/work in and bedding and sometimes jeans to help with wrinkles but never anything I care about.
SEPARATE! Don't just dump all your laundry in together and let bright colored stuff bleed into light colored stuff. RED colored clothing should always be washed alone or with other reds for the first 1-3 washes to keep whatever is gonna bleed out from dying your other clothes. After that, I wash with other colors but never anything light. Wash whites separate so you can use bleach and/or warm water.
DON'T USE CHEAP DETERGENT! I'm all about being thrifty, but there are certain things I don't like to bargain for. Bed sheets, bath towels, underwear, pretty much anything that touches me needs to be plush.
That's about it! Get you some fabric softener sheets to throw in the dryer and you're good to go! Speaking of dryer, don't forget to clean out your lint trap every 2-3 uses! That's one of the biggest causes of house fires! So stay fly but also, as well as and in addition to, stay safe!
