When summer comes, parties, travelling, and outdoor activities make it harder to take care of your favourite items. Summer fabrics such as cotton, linen, and silk are aesthetically pleasing yet more challenging to maintain. This article offers 6 useful summer laundry tips to care for your delicate pieces of clothing.

1. Read the labels

When it comes to washing your summer clothes, it is important to follow the care label of each item to ensure their longevity. Below are some guidelines on how to wash different types of fabrics:

  • Cotton - This durable material can be machine washed using any type of detergent. Use warm water to wash and tumble dry on low heat. If needed, iron cotton clothing on the highest heat setting.
  • Linen - As linen becomes softer with each wash, it's recommended to wash it on a gentle machine cycle or by hand, using mild detergent and cold water. While it can be put in the dryer machine on a low setting, it should be taken out while still slightly damp to avoid excessive wrinkles.
  • Polyester - For polyester clothing, use warm water to wash and fabric softener to prevent static cling. Dry on a low temperature setting to avoid damage to the fabric.

2. Take care of your swimwear

During summertime, people enjoy swimming at pools or beaches. It is essential to maintain your swimwear's quality after a swim.

To avoid sand getting into the machine, always hand wash your swimwear before placing them in the washing machine. After handwashing, use the washing machine and set it to 30 degrees. Once the cycle is complete, your swimwear will look fresh and delicate without the strong smell of chlorine.

3. Pre-treat your clothes

Barbecue sauce, grass marks, and other stains can leave unsightly marks on your summer clothing. Rather than fretting about this issue, it is advised to act fast by using water or soda water to prevent the stain from settling into the fabric. Once you have tackled the stain, it is crucial to wash the garment as soon as possible.

4. Use laundry mesh bags

Consider using laundry mesh bags to keep your clothes in top condition, even if your washing machine have a gentle cycle. These bags offer protection against damage during washing. Simply place your garments in the mesh bag before adding them to the washer to avoid any ripping, snagging, or tangling concerns.

5. Cool down

High-temperature washing can damage the fibers of your summer clothes, leading to shrinkage over time. To avoid this, it is unnecessary to wash your clothes in hot water; instead, focus on proper preparation. While it may seem old-fashioned, washing collars and cuffs beforehand can be effective in maintaining your clothing's condition. Find out more tips on how to use a washing machine in our article.

6. Don’t over wash 

Over-washing our clothes can cause fading, shrinking, and damage to the fabric. It also increases energy consumption, wastes time and money, and contributes to environmental damage. To extend the life of our clothes and reduce our impact on the environment, we should wash them only when necessary and follow the care instructions on the label.
