The rainy season is a challenge for many moms especially when it comes to drying the laundry. Since drying clothes outdoors is out of the question, bringing them indoors after washing becomes commonplace.
But hanging freshly washed clothes indoors can leave them with a distinct and unpleasant odor. Moreover, wet clothes can cause a build-up of bacteria making them unsafe especially for infants.
That is why Beko Philippines, Europe’s leading brand of washers, shares some simple tips to keep your clothes clean, fresh-smelling and safe to wear.
Use Fabric Conditioner
Soak clothes in fabric conditioner during the rinse cycle. Fabric softeners not only leave clothes soft, but it also leaves them smelling fresh even if hung out to dry indoors preventing that all-too-familiar and unpleasant “kulob” odor. There are also fabric conditioners that have anti-microbial properties that leave clothes not only fragrant but bacteria-free.
Hang Clothes Properly
Where you hang them in the house also helps. Look for an area where there is good ventilation so the clothes get as much air as possible. Never hang them in cramped and enclosed spaces. Heavy pieces, such as jeans, towels, and carpets should be placed near the windows where air flows through. It is also worthwhile to ensure that the room where they hang in get good ventilation overall.
Give them a good wringing
Before you hang them, make sure that you’ve given them a thorough wringing. Clothes that are still quite wet not only dry longer, but they also smell bad even when already dry.
Choose the right dryers
Lastly, invest in the right dryer. Choose a dryer that can eliminate bacteria that cause can be harmful to your family. What’s more, they also maintain the fresh smell of the fabric conditioners you use, so your clothes smell fragrant.
