Better to throw it away: the temperature at which you can't wash clothes has been named
Repeated and frequent washing cycles can cause clothes to become dull and lose colour. This can be caused by improperly selected detergent, too hard water or the use of chemicals.
But, according to experts, most often things get damaged because of an incorrectly set washing temperature. Read the OBOZREVATEL article to find out at what temperature you shouldn't wash your clothes.
It is believed that it is better to wash clothes in hot water. This way, grease and dirt will dissolve faster under the influence of high temperatures. In fact, the only thing that can be achieved by washing in too hot water is the effect of spoilt clothes.
Therefore, when choosing the temperature on the washing machine, do not turn on too high. Experts say that only children's shirts or bed linen should be washed at 90 degrees. Other things will simply spoil.
It is optimal to wash clothes at a temperature of 30 degrees. This will save energy and will not affect the condition of the clothes.
By the way, the express mode is not suitable for all fabrics and makes washing more energy-intensive. The economy mode uses less water and energy, although it takes longer to complete the wash. Water heating accounts for 90 per cent of the washing machine's energy consumption. The drum spin uses very little energy in comparison. Washing at a lower temperature consumes up to 59% less energy, which can reduce electricity and water bills.
In addition, the currently popular bio-powders contain special enzymes that lose their effectiveness at temperatures above 30°C.
