Washing Machine

A Which survey found that not one of the respondents could live without a washing machine. Fridge – yes, but washing machine – no!

Adding a 200ml cup of distilled white vinegar to the wash, instead of a synthetic softener, washes the soap out of fabrics, leaving behind just your clothes fluffy goodness!

If we washed all of our clothes in hot water, they would soon look pretty shabby. Hot water damages some fabrics such as wool and shrinks others such as linen.

Washing clothes in cold water helps to retain dark and vibrant colours, reduces colour bleeding and reduces wrinkling. It’s the detergent that does most of the cleaning, not any heat in the water.
