With the current pandemic spreading like wildfire across the world, we need all the extra precaution that we could get. Currently one of the top priorities in most houses is to keep it clean and sanitized as much as possible.
Staying clean is extremely important, especially as many different kinds of microbes can survive on different surfaces like our clothes. With that we need extra precautions on how to take care and properly wash our clothes. Luckily Samsung has some tips on how to clean your clothes thoroughly.
Familiarize yourself with the washing machine’s features
Nowadays, washing machines do more than just simply washing and drying clothes. It’s important to know a machine’s extra features as it might help in sanitizing and disinfecting your clothes much better. For example, Samsung Digital Appliances’ Front Load Washer has an Air Wash System that deodorizes and sanitizes clothes and bedding. It does this by using hot air reaching up to 80-degrees Celsius blown onto the clothes removing 99.9 percent of bacteria and allergens, along with unpleasant odors without the use of the of chemicals.
Handle laundry with special care
To be on the safer side, use gloves when doing your laundry and follow each of the item’s specific washing instructions. Also make sure to wash newly purchased clothes before using them since in-store clothes have gone many hands and might have even been tried on by different people.
Wash clothes effectively, old and new alike with Samsung Digital Appliances’ Eco Bubble technology that cleans powerfully even at low temperatures. This feature turns detergents into bubbles to quickly penetrate fabric and remove dirt easily while protecting the fabric and saving energy.
Do not overload the washer
It’s better to leave ample space inside the washer when using it as the detergent needs room to circulate through the clothes. Overloading a washer can result in clothes that aren’t thoroughly washed and sanitized. Also, segregating clothes by color, fabric, and overall weight is key to a good wash cycle. Mixing a heavy knitted cardigan along with a thin cotton shirt isn’t ideal since these two need different times in the washer.
Disinfect washer, baskets, and other surfaces
Just as clothes should be cleaned before and after use, also make sure to sanitize where the clothes, both dirty and clean, are being stored. If possible, opt to use a mat or liner that is either disposable or can be laundered to limit the exposure of clothes to different surfaces.
Samsung’s Digital Appliances’ washing machines also have EcoDrumClean+ which ensures 95 percent removal of the unit’s drum contamination. Through a combination of powerful water jet streams and high-speed spinning, it keeps the buildup of mold, lint, dirt, and detergent residues at bay.
Being more aware and careful is always a good extra measure to take, especially with everyday essentials such as clothing. Make use of innovative home appliances to keep safe and sanitized.
