How To Do Laundry
Wearing clothes is a natural part of life, if we did not, everybody would be running around naked. Personally I would not like to see people in their birthday suits. So, I thank Adam and Eve for clothes, but one part of wearing close is they need to be washed. If clothes were not washed everybody would have a rank odor to them. This is why we need a washer and dryer, to do laundry. I am going to talk about the process of doing laundry, here are the main steps to doing laundry; separating clothes, putting the clothes in the washer, taking the clothes out of the washer and placing them into the dryer, when clothes are dry the last step would be putting away clothes in the proper place.
First, I pick a day to do my laundry which is usually on a Sunday. I go through the house and gather all the dirty clothes. Once I have my dirty clothes gathered I start to separate the clothes. I personally separate my clothes in this order; jeans go with jeans, colored clothes go with colors, whites go with whites, and towels and wash rags go with each other. Once I have all my clothes separated I move on to the next step.
Secondly, I begin by pouring two cap fulls of Gain laundry detergent into the washer. Most people only use one cap full, but I like using two cause to me it makes my clothes smell even better then if I was just using one cap full. Gain laundry detergent is not a necessity I just prefer Gain over all other brands. When I get the detergent poured in the washer I select the load size which is always large for me, but it also has small, and medium load settings. Then I select the water temperature, I want my clothes washed in hot water, but there are other temperature settings. I add my clothes to the washer, usually each pile I have separated is one load. Push knob in turn it on normal cycle setting then pull the knob out and the washer begins to run through all the cycles. When the washer stops it is time for the next step.
The next process is getting the clothes out of the washer, and placing the clothes in the dryer. I make sure that the dryer vent is clean if it is not, I clean all the lint off of the dryer vent. A dryer vent collects all the lint that comes off clothes while the clothes are in the process of drying. Then I add dryer sheets I usually put anywhere from four to eight dryer sheets just my preference. Dryer sheets are
Used primarily for static and in the process they make clothes smell good. Once, I have the dryer sheets in the dryer and the dryer vent cleaned, I close the dryer door and select what drying cycle I want the dryer on. Tho most people use timed dry, I prefer auto sense drying its a sure thing clothes will be dry
