According to the experts from AO.com, each piece of clothing has a big list of do’s and don’ts that people should be paying careful attention to.
In one of their recent social media posts, they said that bright colours should be washed at a cold temperature with all similar colours together.
But when it comes to getting them dry, they shouldn’t be hung out in the sun, so should instead be placed inside.
On the other hand, white clothes should be put on a hotter cycle. They added: “Add a bluing agent to balance out yellow stains.”
Again, they’re the total opposite of bright colours, as white clothing should be hung out to to in the sunlight.
Black clothing also has some different factors to bear in mind.
The experts at AO claim that the clothes don’t need to be washed as often, but when they do wash them on a short, cold cycle.
Another top tip they provided was: “Dry black clothes indoors so they don’t fade in the sunlight.”
Knitwear also has its own set of rules, including that wool should be “hand washed or dry cleaned.”
They continued: “Cotton knits should be washed in a short, cool wash.
“Keep knits out of the sun to dry and lay them flat.”
