Here are three things you need to know if you always wash your clothes on a quick cycle.
3 things you need to know if always use the quick wash cycle
1 – For clothes that aren’t badly soiled and are free from stains, the quick wash cycle is fine. For items of clothes with heavy stains, a longer wash is required.
2 – The quick wash cycle will have a shorter rinse time so don’t overfill your machine and, go easy on the detergent to avoid your clothes don’t come out with soap still on them.
3 – Choosing the correct water temperature is also important. Clothes need to be washed at 60 °C in order to kill germs and bacteria. Regularly using a low-temperature wash may cause a build-up of mould inside your machine. Make sure you run an empty hot wash every few weeks to clean out your machine.
