Do Laundry

  1. Sort your clothes: Separate your clothes into whites, colors, and darks. This will help prevent colors from bleeding onto other clothes and keep your whites looking bright.

  2. Load the washing machine: Put the clothes from one pile into the washing machine. Follow the instructions on the detergent bottle to add the right amount of detergent for the size of the load.

  3. Set the washing machine: Set the washing machine to the right settings, including the water temperature and the cycle type. For most loads, warm water is a good choice, but for clothes that are particularly dirty, hot water may be necessary.

  4. Start the washing machine: Once you've set the washing machine, start the cycle and wait for it to finish.

  5. Transfer the clothes to the dryer: When the washing machine is finished, transfer the clothes to the dryer. Be sure to clean the lint trap before you start the dryer.

  6. Set the dryer: Set the dryer to the appropriate settings, including the temperature and the cycle type.

  7. Start the dryer: Once you've set the dryer, start the cycle and wait for it to finish.

  8. Fold the clothes: When the clothes are dry, take them out of the dryer and fold them neatly.
