Introduction to laundry | Thorough explanation of how to use a washing machine correctly

Washing machines are used casually in daily housework.
Maybe you're not using it properly to remove dirt, or you're doing things that don't allow for more bacteria.
So this time, let's review the basics of how to use a washing machine and how to care for it.

Things to keep in mind before running your washing machine

The household chore of laundry begins even before you turn on the washing machine.
It can be said to be a representative example of "invisible housework" and "housework without a name."
Here we will introduce some things you should be careful about before running your washing machine.

Bacteria breed in your laundry basket!

It often happens that you don't have time to run the washing machine and laundry piles up.
At such times, we tend to overload the laundry basket with laundry, but in reality, overcrowding the laundry hampers ventilation and can lead to the growth of bacteria .
Bacteria love moisture , so if you put wet towels and dry clothes in the same laundry basket, bacteria will multiply.
Ideally, you can put wet towels in the washing machine right away, but if you don't have time to do laundry, prepare two laundry baskets and place wet towels and dry laundry in separate laundry baskets. You can also prevent the growth of bacteria by separating them and soaking wet towels that already have a smell before putting them in the washing machine.

Things to check before putting it in the washing machine

When putting laundry into the washing machine, be sure to check the following three things.

Check the washing label

It's easy to forget that some clothes cannot be washed in the washing machine, so be sure to check the washing label before putting them in the washing machine.

Make sure there is no trash or money in your pockets.

If there is trash inside, it may melt and spread inside the washing machine, spreading dirt and debris to other laundry items.
Check it out to save yourself a second time.

Check if you have placed delicate or decorated clothing online.

We recommend placing your clothes in a net to prevent them from rubbing against other clothes and damaging the fabric during washing.
At the very least, be sure to put underwear, clothes with hooks, and clothes that lose their shape in the net.

How much laundry can I put in the washing machine?

If you overload the washing machine, the clothes will not move around in the washing machine and the detergent won't be distributed all over the machine.
Not only will it make it harder to remove stains, but friction between clothes can also cause them to be damaged or torn.
Therefore, Linenna recommends loading your washing machine to about 80% of its capacity .

How to use a washing machine | Settings for clean washing to cleaning

Here we will introduce you to the basics of how to use a washing machine, settings for washing laundry cleanly, and how to care for your washing machine.

The secret to not leaving stains on clothes is the number of times you rinse them.

The important thing to pay attention to in the washing process is rinsing.
No matter how good a detergent is at removing stains, if you neglect rinsing, it will be ruined.
During the ``washing'' process, the inside of the washing machine is filled with ``sewage,'' which is dirt that has dissolved from the clothes in the cleaning solution.
If you just dehydrate this, you're just squeezing out the waste water , right? By pouring clean water into the clothes and repeating the dehydration process, the dirty cleaning solution is diluted and the dirt and detergent are washed away from the clothes, a process called ``rinsing'' .
If you rinse once, this dirty cleaning solution cannot be removed sufficiently and remains on the clothes.
Therefore, be sure to rinse at least twice , or more times if it is extremely dirty.

Humidity is your enemy! How to clean the washing machine after washing

Moisture is a washing machine's enemy .
There is a considerable amount of bacteria that could not be washed away on the back of the washing tub and on the clothes that have been washed.
Bacteria breed in humid areas , so if you don't dry your laundry immediately after washing, bacteria will grow not only in the washing tub but also on your clothes.
It is these bacteria that proliferate that cause unpleasant odors such as the smell of half-dried laundry.
Therefore, the golden rule is to take out the laundry immediately after washing.
To prevent bacteria from growing inside the washing machine, open the lid of the washing machine to ventilate the washing machine.

Keep your washing machine in good condition with daily care and monthly maintenance.

Lastly, let's check how to care for your washing machine.
Removable parts such as the detergent dispenser case, dust removal net, lint filter, drying filter, and drainage filter require daily maintenance .
Especially with drum-type washing machines, dirt and moisture tend to remain behind the gasket on the door, so be sure to wipe it off each time .
Even if you take good care of it every day, the back of the washing tub is a place where bacteria can easily breed .
You can also keep your washing tank clean by cleaning it with tank cleaning detergent once a month.
It's easy to put off cleaning your washing machine, but why not try to keep your washing machine in good condition with regular maintenance?
