The average American household does one load of laundry per day -; that's a lot of time in the laundry room.
Many people take pride in the appearance of their families' wardrobe, but all that time in the laundry room
might be a waste.    Here are some tips on when to spend time and when to save it while doing laundry:::Spend
Time: Hand WashingggIf you have to hand wash a garment, it is because it's delicate and needs special care.
Let all the water drain out of the basin before moving a fragile or loosely knitted garment. Don't squeeze
delicate fabrics in a hurry to remove water; they may stretch or tear...Save Time: Use Shorter
CyclesssNinety-eight percent of soil comes out in the first two minutes of a wash cycle. Your everyday
clothing, without stains or ground-in soil, only needs about six minutes of laundry time, so using shorter
wash cycles can save water, time and your dark clothing from fading...Spend Time: Wash Clothes in Smaller
LoadsssDon't overload your washer. You may get more clothes in, but they won't come out clean. If a washer is
too full, clothes won't agitate or rinse enough. Make sure clothing is equally distributed around the tub
of washer to keep the load balanced during spin cycles...Save Time: Pouring, Spilling and Dissolving
the
DetergentttMost detergents require you to wait for the washer to fill and detergent to dissolve before adding
clothes. That's two minutes per load and more than 12 hours a year spent waiting. The OxiClean Detergent Ball
sits in your washer, ready and waiting at all times. Drop it in once and it lasts for 25 loads of laundry
-
eliminating time spent adding detergent every time you do a load.     Due to the advanced technology of OxiClean
Detergent, you won't have to worry about leaving residue on your clothes during the rinse cycle. The low suds
detergent rinses clean every time.    Sometimes taking extra time is the best thing you can do to keep your
wardrobe looking great, but other times it's unnecessary. Knowing when to spend time washing and when to save
it can keep clothes looking their best while giving you more time to show them off...Steve Boorstein, known

Caring for Clothing." He has appeared on "The View," "Good Day New York" and the CBS news. - NU
