How to Care For Your Fabric With Laundry Detergent

Your clothes pick up different germs and bacteria on a daily basis, and relying on your laundry detergent alone isn’t enough to clean your clothes thoroughly. At its worst, you could be spreading germs from one piece of clothing to another in the wash, or even harbouring germs and bacteria in your washing machine. So perhaps it’s time to review your laundry habits and practise more hygienic methods. Aside from using a powerful and concentrated detergent, you may need to integrate additional solutions to your wash routine to thoroughly disinfect your clothes.

Disinfect and sanitise your laundry

You need to find the right laundry detergent as well as a safe and powerful disinfectant to sanitise your clothes efficiently. 

You can also rely on washing machines that have a designated wash cycle for sanitising. This cycle typically activates an extra hot wash to eliminate germs and bacteria effectively. However, it’s important to read your fabric care labels before using this function, as overly hot temperatures can damage some materials or even cause discolouration. 

For those looking to try natural properties, sunlight is a great option to eliminate bacteria from your fabric.

Otherwise, it may be helpful to include one of the following solutions in your next wash: 

  • White vinegar 
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Borax
  • Essential oils such as eucalyptus oil

Disinfecting white vs coloured clothes

Many people often overlook the importance of separating white and coloured clothes in the wash. This rule is especially important when it comes to the disinfection process because different fabrics require specific care. For example, the best way to clean white garments is by soaking them in warm to hot water. But using the same method on brightly coloured clothes may damage the fabric or cause discolouration. It is recommended to sort your clothes into three categories – bleach-safe whites, mixed light colours, and dark colours – because it enables you to treat different fabrics appropriately. 

Tips on disinfecting:

White clothes

  • Soak them in 60 degree Celsius water. 
  • Mix laundry detergent with bleach (or other sanitising solutions).
  • Place clothes in the dryer for at least 45 minutes or dry them under the sunlight. 

Coloured clothes 

  • Use the warmest water possible as instructed on your clothing labels.
  • Avoid using bleach and opt for less harsh solutions. 
  • Dry for at least 45 minutes in a drying machine or under the sunlight.
