When you decide to do a load of washing there are a few responsible guidelines you can follow:
- Make sure you have enough clothes for a full load. As a thumb rule, if you can fit your fist on top of the clothes without pressing down on it, your machine is full.
- Use the recommended dose of laundry detergent. Using more laundry detergent than advised will not make your clothes cleaner. You should always turn your clothes inside out before washing.
- Avoid using fabric softener. Fabric softener is harmful for the environment. If you wish to add a sent to your clothes but do not want to harm the environment, you can instead add some drops of natural scented oil.
