How to determine the correct wash temperature?

How to determine the correct wash temperature?

 

 

Most modern washing machines draw water from the cold tap, which means they heat up the water themselves. Naturally, washing laundry in colder temperatures saves energy and lowers your utility bills. However, different kinds of laundry require different temperatures for effective cleaning.

 

 

 

Check clothes’ care labels

 

The washing temperatures you choose directly affect the lifespan of your garments. The best way to determine a washing temperature is to check your clothes’ care labels. There, you will find the maximum washing temperature for that piece of clothing. Yet, this does not mean that you cannot wash them at lower temperatures. 

 

 

 

Run a cold wash for delicate, coloured, and lightly-soiled items

 

Lower washing temperatures are appropriate for delicate garments made of wool, silk or lace, bright and dark coloured fabrics, jeans, and lightly-soiled items. These fabrics may shrink, fade, or bleed their colours if washed in high temperatures.  

 

Run a hot wash for heavily-soiled items or those requiring extra hygiene

Underwear, household linens, towels and heavily-soiled laundry require higher temperatures for effective cleaning. Hot water also helps clean your washing machine’s drum and drain hose. It’s good practice to use hot water once in a while to avoid dirt build-up inside your machine.
