Protect your skin from your clothes
Yes, you read this correctly. Your clothes might be causing your skin some sensitivities, especially if you already have sensitive skin. But with a few simple steps you can improve your laundry routine and prevent your skin for being irritated by the very clothes, that were supposed to protect it.
Choose the right washing machine
Choosing the right washing machine makes a big difference. Hisense offers advanced models, that have special functions and programmes. One worth extra mentioning is Allergy Steam which eliminates bacteria with deep steam cleaning at the end of the washing cycle. Intertek tests have showed that it protects the skin by eliminating 99.99 % of bacteria out of clothes with highly efficient steam cleaning. Furthermore, the clothes cleaned with this programme also have less wrinkles, are softer and need less ironing.
Separate your laundry the right way
To prevent the spread of viruses, it is recommended to separately wash the clothes that were worn by someone who is sick. Since children pick up more germs it is recommended to wash their clothes separately as well. Underwear can contain bacteria and germs, so it is another thing to wash separately as well as the towels. Bathroom towels are thicker and stay damp longer, so they provide better conditions for germs survival, while kitchen towels are exposed to different bacteria that can be found in the kitchen. It is therefore better to wash these items separately and accordingly to their needs.
Wash your clothes as soon as possible
It is important to regularly wash your clothes, but how do you know, when they need washing? Sadly, in these situations you cannot only rely on your nose, since we can only smell sweat or body oils, and are unable to detect bacteria or viruses. It is therefore best to wash your clothes often. Also avoid leaving dirty clothes in a laundry basket for long periods of time. If clothes are wet or moist and left uncleaned, the laundry basket might provide a great place for germs to breed in.
Use the right amount of laundry detergent
When doing laundry follow the instructions on your detergent. While using more detergent might sound like a good way to make your clothes cleaner, this is not the case. When using too much of it, the detergent might not get completely washed out and this can result in visible detergent residue, clothes feeling scratchy, and it can also cause bacteria to thrive. But if you are a proud owner of a Hisense washing machine with Dose Assist you don’t have to worry because it determines the optimal amount of detergent for your load. It measures the load to make sure you are using the detergent in the most economical and environmentally friendly way.
Clean your washing machine
While doing a great job at cleaning your laundry, the washing machine needs cleaning as well. This is because dirt, mold and bacteria can build up in parts of the machine, like its rubber seals. On the bright side, washing the machine is not as hard as it sounds. Especially Hisense washing machines. Just run self-clean program for truly excellent washing performance.
