The washing machine is, by scandal, the appliance most useful thing we can have at home. Although many consider it necessary to wash their clothes by hand to avoid damage, the truth is that the speed and effectiveness of the washing machine exceeds all expectations. Several of us have made the mistake of believing that all kinds of things could be washed in said device, thus making a serious mistake. If you want to extend the useful life appliance, you’d better avoid introducing some things.
What things should I not put in the washing machine?
As much as it hurts, we should not clean the pillows in the appliance. The explanation is that the pillows are fluffy bedding objects and have cotton inside. So, when introducing it, it is very likely that they will be deformed and even break, in addition to the fact that it is quite difficult for them to return to their original state. The best alternative to washing them is to do it by hand, making sure they don’t get too deformed.
If there is a garment that yes or yes we should wash by hand, it is the bras. Never try to introduce them to the washing machine otherwise it will end up deformed and without the bars, but this is not the only problem, since the metal bars could damage and even break other garments.
Fabrics with flammable stains
Flammable stains that rest on cloth rags can pose a hazard if they are washed in the washing machine, especially when the dryer cycle is activated. It is best to rinse the stain and make sure to remove as much of the remaining substance as possible before adding it to the appliance. In this way, we will extend your useful life.
Last but not least, we should never introduce into the washing machine pet objects. If you need to clean items for your pet, it is best to do it by hand and not use the appliance. The main reason for this is that your body hairs will remain on the fabric and spread all over the machine, sticking to future clothes that are washed. This will cause that in addition to your clothes being filled with hair, they will get dirty when you wash them.
