With a good start you are already half way there. If you sort your laundry properly before you start washing, you have passed your first hurdle. Thus you avoid colours from ‘bleeding’ into each other, or finer fabrics from being damaged. Sorting is simple:
- Keep your white items apart, never mix them with coloured items;
- Separate dark colours from lighter colours;
- Keep your hand washing (finer fabrics) apart.
So basically you have a pile of white washing, a pile of dark colours, a pile of lighter colours, and a pile for hand washing.
Tip! Use different laundry baskets or a laundry basket with divisions for easy sorting.
