Sort by Color

Whites
 Whites go separate because we want them to stay
 white. One red sock that isn’t colorfast can turn an
 entire white load pink. More often than not whites
 need a warmer water temperature than other clothing
 to ensure proper cleaning.
Reds or Bright colors
 Colorfast pinks, purples, reds, and oranges can be
 mixed together to make a full load. Warning, red
 clothing is notorious for losing its color and bleeding
 onto other fabrics. When in doubt wash reds
 separately. Other bright colors can fade or lose their
 color onto other lighter clothing.
Sort by Fabric Type
  Delicate
     lace
     wool
  Sturdy
     jeans
     jackets
Towels
 Towels are lint producers. The lint they give off sticks
  to other types of clothing. You can wash towels with
  blankets, sheets, and robes as long as everything is
  colorfast.
Specialty Items
 Specialty items will often have special cleaning
 instructions such as wash separately, can’t be dried in
 dryer or lay flat to dry, and wash and dry using low
 temperatures.
When in doubt…
