We’re still enjoying our Whirlpool duet washing machine and dryer. A year later the only thing we notice is that they use a bit more water than our previous washer and dryer use but we’re still happy with them and they get the stains out. Speaking of stains, it’s the holiday season and baking, cooking and eating are at the top of everyone’s lists. The kids love cranberry sauce and I love red wine, both are notorious for leaving red stains on everything they touch.
I usually try to make the child stain proof which fails me every time, I mean can you imagine keeping a four year old boy’s clothing clean? It’s impossible without help!
He’s always eating
These are his holiday clothes
and so far so good no stains yet. Whirlpool has shared some tips with me that I want to share with you. The main one is that I pretreat everything. My husband does a better job than I do and that’s one reason why I’m so happy he’s in charge of the laundry. Here’s those tips, keep your holiday clothes looking clean and stain free!
First rule of thumb, read the care label. After that, follow the instructions below.
· Cranberry sauce slip off the spoon? Remove any excess fruit from the cotton and run the fabric under cold water to prevent oxidation. Wash the garment in the warmest water safe for it. Use your bleach dispenser or add liquid chlorine bleach or color-safe bleach during the rinse cycle, after your detergent has done its job.
· Turkey a bit too juicy? Apply a pretreat to the oily stain, or rub liquid detergent directly into it. Wash the garment in the hottest water safe for the fabric, then air dry and check it for any remaining stain. If necessary, repeat the procedure before placing the clothing in the dryer.
· Overflow from the gravy boat? Scrape off any remaining gravy with a spoon or back of a butter knife. If it has already dried, brush off the residue. Rub in liquid detergent and then soak the fabric in a mixture of detergent and water for up to 30 minutes. Finish by washing the garment in the warmest water safe for it.
