Earlier, washing filthy items & clothes was a very hard task for everyone. But after the evolution of washers or the washing machine, it has become pretty easier. At present, we cannot think of a house without a washing machine. Washing machines may seem like an end-all solution for all your dirty items. But, the force generated by them to break down or get rid of those tough stains can damage some fabrics. This is NYK. We bring you a list of some items you should ideally avoid putting in your machine.
• Items covered with your pet's hair
The washing machine may seem like a quick fix for items covered in pet hair, such as pet beds, clothing, & blankets. While it will clear the hair initially, it will create problems later. The pet hair doesn't vanish. It will stick to the sides of the washer's drum and attach them to other clothes during the next cycle.
• Leather items
Unless you have a really good reason to wash leather items at home, you should strictly avoid doing that! Otherwise, genuine leather may get fade or shrink to the reaction of detergent & water. A bonus tip is to consider consulting a leather care specialist to give your leather items the best treatment.
• Running shoes
Some people might recommend throwing dirty running sneakers in the laundry, but these items should never, ever set foot in the washer. Not only will the washer severely harm the shoe's material, but it will also mess up the shape and size.
So the next time you put a batch of items into your washer, make sure none of these items are part of it.
