USING THE LAUNDRY NET: ALL ANSWERS IN ONE PLACE
We are all satisfied if we manage to maintain the quality of our favorite clothes for as long as possible. Special laundry nets help us with this. But did you know what can you wash in it and how to use it properly?
Here are some ideas and tips on how to make the most of laundry nets. Used properly, these mesh bags will keep the quality of your delicate clothes at a desirable level for years.
What can laundry nets be used for?
The most common use, which you probably knew about, is to protect underwear from damaging, stretching and possible wear and tear in the washing machine. But they are not used exclusively for underwear.
These practical nets are suitable for washing, but also for drying small and delicate types of clothes. In addition to being great for protecting the fabric, the laundry nets also protect the machine from small laundry getting stuck. In addition, the net from which it is made enables easier drying.
Besides underwear, it is ideal for: nylon socks, silk and satin items, socks, scarves, gloves, hats, delicate clothing with beads and / or sequins, swimsuits, and even old T-shirts you are emotionally attached to and want to wear for as long as possible.
How to properly use laundry nets?
Check the allowed washing temperature on the clothes, put them in the bag, and close the patent completely. Insert the bag into the tub of the washing machine and run the desired program. After washing, take out the laundry and dry it as usual, as well as the net. For machine drying, there is no need to take the clothes out of the bag. If the clothes you put in the nets have buttons or patents, they can easily hook to other clothes during the washing cycle – even from a net bag! Therefore, always close them before washing, so as not to damage other laundry in the machine.
The biggest disadvantage of laundry nets is that they fill up easily, which prevents the clothes from being washed properly. Most of them are designed to contain one larger item of clothing that is approximately the same size and shape as the bag itself. So be careful not to overfill it – put several smaller items in one bag (for example socks and underwear), and use the other for, let’s give an example – a silk blouse. You won’t have any problems with washing and rinsing as long as the laundry in the net can move.
Although great for your delicate wardrobe, laundry nets are not magical and you shouldn’t expect them to protect your sensitive clothes from hot water or heat from the dryer, nor from dyeing when combined with other colored clothes. So be sure to pay attention to what is written on the labels, interpret the symbols, and sort the clothes that way.
Since we are talking about delicate wardrobe, adhere to the short washing and drying cycles and other suitable cycles for washing this type of laundry offered by Tesla washing machines. In addition to increasing the lifespan of your clothes, you will use less energy, reduce utility costs and the overall impact on the environment.
How to maintain are certain delicate fabrics?
Washing in cold or semi-cold water is the best choice for all brightly colored clothes, in order to preserve its durability and preserve the fibers – just as is the case with silk, which is most often dyed in various colors or wool, which is susceptible to shrinking.
In contrast to colored clothes, white underwear is called delicate, not only because of its whiteness and susceptibility to easy coloring, but also because of the fiber structure. The white wardrobe is usually made of cotton, natural fibers that gather and retain bacteria and other microorganisms easily.
Such issues are best solved in hot water, which is why we boil white baby clothes, diapers, intimate underwear, towels, and even kitchen towels.
Now, we will focus only on those most often used in the laundry net:
Be sure to wash them in cold water with a little liquid detergent. Do not spin and dry in the washing machine. Air dry, but not in direct sunlight.
Like other delicate laundry, it would be advisable to wash them in lukewarm water using a mild detergent. Machine drying is not recommended.
Maintenance depends a lot on the type of silk, so it is recommended that you carefully study which silk type you are washing. If it is not explicitly stated that it can be washed in the machine, wash it by hand – with water and a mild detergent, do not rub it roughly and rinse it with cold water. Some types of silk must dry cleaned. Silk is made up of protein fibers, and many washing powders contain additives to remove stains of protein origin. So, take extra notice when choosing the right type of powder.
You can wash linen in the washing machine at very low temperatures and using the program for delicate laundry and delicate materials, featured on Tesla washing machines.
Let linen clothes dry naturally, hanging or laid on a flat surface.
The clothes we wear for training, such as stretchy leggings, shorts and T-shirts, are also washed in lukewarm water due to the composition of smooth materials, such as lyocell, viscose and the like. You will remove sweat particles very easily with a little detergent, and the fibers will not stretch.
The washing machine plays an important role!
With all previous advice, it is very important that you have a real “ally” in your home in the fight against dirty laundry, which will not only make this thankless job easier and faster, but also save you time and money.
