What not to wash in the washing machine

Hand washing is sometimes too time-consuming and labor-intensive, and dry cleaning is far from a cost-effective "pleasure," so people are often tempted to throw everything in the washing machine. However, it is better not to do this. Some clothes can be damaged in the washing machine or spoil the household appliances themselves.

This was told by Diane Dimitrov, CEO of Laundryheap, a British company that runs an online laundry delivery service. His recommendations were published by Express.co.uk.

The expert does not recommend putting laundry in the washing machine. In particular, bras. The clasps on it can catch on other delicate fabrics and tear them. In addition, there is a risk that these fasteners will get stuck in the walls of the drum and damage the equipment. It can also stretch the bra itself and ruin its delicate materials and original shape.

Ties are also best washed by hand or dry-cleaned. Most of them are made of delicate fabrics: silk or wool. In the washing machine, they can lose their original quality or "color" other things.

It's clear that coins and keys are never put in the washing machine on purpose, but the laundry expert recommended "taking extra care" not to throw them in by mistake.

Diane explained:"Metal can damage your washing machine's drain pump and scratch its insides, so always check your pockets before loading."

Children's clothes also need special attention when washing in the machine. Especially tiny socks for babies. If a mountain of dirty clothes has accumulated and you can't wash it by hand, then use special laundry bags for washing in the machine.

"They can get stuck inside the drain holes of the washing machine, which can affect the efficiency of the washing machine and even cause flooding. I would recommend putting them in small mesh bags to avoid losing them among the clothes and inside the washing machine," Dimitrov commented.

Most silk products, including clothing and bedding, need to be dry cleaned because high temperatures can tear delicate fabrics. In addition, they can lose their shape when spinning.

"You can also run the risk of staining other clothes because dyes from colored silk often get on other fabrics," the expert said.

Clothes with zippers and a large number of buttons in the washing machine pose a great risk to the equipment and the clothes themselves if they are not properly protected.

"Zippers and buttons can get stuck in the drum of the machine or damage other things in the washing machine, so be sure to fasten all your clothes before putting them in the washing machine," the expert advised.
