American humorist and author Mark Twain once famously said, “The finest clothing made is a person’s skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this”. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the last thing you would want to worry about is the clothes you put on your back. So here, we shed light on the issue of fabric care.

First up – wash

First off is the business of washing your clothes. As far as possible, separate your whites, darks and collared clothing into different washing loads. This minimizes and eliminates the risk of your precious clothes turning into an abstract painting. Prior to washing any article of clothing, always check the care label and follow its instructions as close as possible. Modern washing machines, such as the Electrolux Time Manager front loading washing machine, has a selection of programme lengths for various soil levels. This is a clever alternative to hand washing your clothes, and gentler on your hands. Lingerie and silky gowns should always be washed in a laundry bag, to protect them from buttons and catches that may tear them while in cycle.

After washing comes drying, and there are two ways of going about it. For those who prefer the traditional method of drying, you could hang them outside for about a day or so. However using this method may cause several problems, most of which come from insects, birds or the occasional inconsiderate neighbour above that may stain your freshly washed clothes and delicates.

For those with the luxury of a spacious laundry area, there are the Electrolux stand-alone dryer machines which—with a choice of 5 to 6kg capacities—feature a crease-free option that reduces the wrinkles in your clothes. It also has a clever auto-sensing technology that detects the level of moisture in your clothes and then chooses the optimum drying time. Forget about pulling out balls of tangled laundry, thanks to the reverse tumble action that reduces the chances of your clothes bunching together.

Thankfully, for those who live in apartments with space constraints there is the Electrolux dryer and washing machine. This clever bit of engineering allows you to kick back and relax while it takes care of your clothes, providing you with fresh-smelling clothes every time.

Remember the time you burnt an iron-shaped hole in your favourite shirt or dress? It is a truly heart-breaking feeling, and one that should not be repeated. To begin, always turn your iron to a temperature lower than what is recommended on your clothes’ care label. This is because irons heat up faster than they can cool down. It is always safer to increase the temperature later, rather than to find out that your iron has left a lasting impression on your clothes. The Electrolux Confidence glides effortlessly, ironing out the creases in your garments. It also packs several innovative features, such as a 3-way auto-off function, self cleaning and an anti-drip system, making it safe to use around children.
