Products Detergent- powder or liquid – Similar to soap, but is less affected by hard water Fabric Softener- liquid, crystals, dryer sheets, and even a bar – Also called a fabric conditioner, prevents static sling and makes fabric softer – Can be added to wash or placed in the dryer
Setting stains Stains can “set” which mean the stain becomes a part of the fabric itself and cannot be easily removed without harming the fabric To avoid setting the stain- avoid heat, clean using appropriate cleansers, AND DO NO RUB THE STAIN
Stain removal Most stains are removed by dissolving the stain There are different types of stain removers for different stains Some stain removers are better at getting out certain types of stains
Oxidizing removers Household bleach- removes the color, but not always the stain – Used on whites and colorfast material (will not ruin the color) – Works on natural stains such as food, and grass Hydrogen peroxide- also a bleaching agent – Use for blood stains, wine, juice, and pet stains
Acetone Found in nail polish remover (however buy regular acetone instead) Removes glues, nail polish, rubber cement, and grease Dawn dishwashing detergent works better on grease, and oil
Others Lemon juice- bleaches stains – Can be accelerated by exposing the stain to sunlight – Combine with cream of tartar for a stronger spot remover Club soda- good with pet stains – Keeps stains from setting Hair shampoo helps mud and cosmetic stains
Equipment Washing machines- – Top-loading machines Least expensive and not as efficient as front loaders – Front loaders perform better at a higher cost and has a better spin cycle Saves energy, water, and drying time – No-detergent washing- washer separates out hydrogen and oxygen from the wash water. Oxygen breaks down stains and removes dirt Looks like the front loader
Equipment- cont. Dryers replaces clothes line and drying racks – Usually look like their washer sibling- can be top load or front load – Some dryers have moisture sensors that will keep the dryer hot enough to dry clothes and will stop when the clothes dry
Pressing and Ironing Pressing- put iron down and press hard to create or reinforce folds or creases – Often used in making clothes Ironing- sliding an iron back and forth to remove wrinkles – Used to finish garments
