You should also think about how to dry your clothes so that you spare both your clothes and the globe. Let your clothes air dry as much as possible. On the one hand, you save electricity, which the environment is happy with, and on the other hand, it is far more gentle on your clothes. The lint that sits in the dryer's filter after a round of drying is part of the fibers the clothes are made of, and when they break, as with tumble drying, the structure and moisture in the fabric are destroyed, and it has a greater tendency to dryness and generally lasts shorter. time when the substance becomes weak ..
1. Do not automatically throw away your clothes for washing once you have worn them. Often we tend to throw our clothes for washing when we take them off in the evening without deciding whether it is actually dirty or not.
2. Air your clothes. Let your clothes hang over a chair when you take it off, and then assess the next day if it is dirty and needs washing or if you can wear it again. Fold the clothes you should not wear on the same day and put in your closet or dresser. If you do not like to mix completely clean and used, but clean clothes, then have a special shelf or drawer for the clothes you can wear again. Also, hang your sweaters and pants outdoors if you think they smell of food or smoke but are not dirty. That way, you remove the odor without washing.
3. Clean your clothes. Many stains can easily be washed off with a wrung-out cloth and possibly a little soap. Especially knit sweaters and coarse-woven trousers such as cowboy trousers can easily be stained. 
4. Freeze your clothes. Put your clothes in the freezer or hang them outdoors in the winter. The cold removes bad odors such as sweat odor, as the bacteria that create the odor can not survive the low temperatures. In addition, a trip in the freezer helps to gather the fibers so that hairy wool like angora traps less.
5. Wash your clothes properly. Clothes should be washed differently depending on the material it is made of. Check the wash marks in your clothes. Cotton is well suited for machine washing, but use a gentle detergent so that you do not wear unnecessarily on either the cotton fibers or the globe. Wool is more delicate and should be washed by hand or in a machine on a wool program and with a special wool detergent. And remember to use lukewarm and not hot water for your wool clothes. In addition, you should put clothes made of wool or silk in the laundry bag, as these materials are delicate and easily get holes when in contact with the machine.
6. Sort the clothes by color. You should sort your laundry by color, so that your styles are washed with similar colors and you thus avoid contamination - especially the first times you wash it. However, this does not apply to synthetic materials that do not usually spread. If you want to make sure you tie the color in your clothes as much as possible, you can leave styles of natural materials such as cotton and bamboo in vinegar water for a day before you wash it for the first time.
7. Turn the clothes over. When you wash the clothes with the inside out, you wear less on the side that is seen and your clothes will thus appear nicer for a longer time. Remember the pockets Always check the pockets. Also on the children's clothes. Children can have many treasures hidden in their small pockets, which neither the clothes nor the machine benefit from getting too close acquainted with. And nothing is more annoying than a paper handkerchief that has come in the sink and fluffs on all the other clothes.
8. Wash at the lowest possible temperature. Bed linen, underwear, sportswear and towels should be washed at at least 60 degrees, so that bacteria and dust particles are killed, but your other clothes should only be washed at 30 degrees. However, you must be aware of whether your detergent is suitable for washing at low temperatures . Clear Laundry effectively washes clean when washing from 30 degrees.
