Although the washing machine is a little helper in daily life, it is inevitable that sometimes it will help you wrong. For example, some materials will shrink after washing, some will become detached, some will be discolored… which clothes are they Can’t it be put in the washing machine?
Zhao Qi, secretary-general of the Expert Technical Committee of the China Knitting Industry Association, said that two aspects should be paid attention to whether the clothes are suitable for machine washing. First, look at the washing label on the clothes. The non-machine washable symbol has a circle inside a box and then a cross; second, it’s not that the more high-end clothes, the higher the price, the more wear-resistant clothes will be. Whether the clothes can be machine-washed needs to be considered according to various factors such as the material and structure of the clothes, and the damage that may be caused by the machine washing. “Life Times” summarizes the following nine types of clothes for you, which are not suitable for machine washing.
silk clothing. Soft satin, brocade, hollow or embroidered silk clothing products have a soft texture and poor wear resistance. There are machine-washable silk clothing, but most silk clothing should not be machine-washed as much as possible. Because washing in a high-speed washing drum, it is easy to damage the structure of the clothes, causing serious shrinkage, fuzzing, snagging, and even the formation of pompoms on the surface. At the same time, the satin will lose its luster. Do not wring dry when washing by hand. In order to avoid shrinkage caused by poor handling, it is best to choose dry cleaning.
woolen clothes. Woolen clothes refer to wool and cashmere clothes, which are animal fibers and are more expensive and elegant. There are some machine-washable woolen clothes, but most woolen clothes are recommended to be dry cleaned. Machine washing can easily damage the texture and hairy feel of the cloth. In addition, due to the characteristics of milling of woolen clothes, when machine-washed, the shrinkage rate is high, resulting in shrinkage, style distortion, or adhesion.
Inlaid silk clothes. The process of threaded clothes is more complicated. The process of washing and drying with a washing machine is easy to deform due to uneven shrinkage after water absorption, which affects the appearance, decreases the fastness, and even causes problems such as threading. Therefore, it should not be machine washed, rubbed vigorously, or twisted. After washing, hang it on a hanger and let it drip naturally to dry.
with accessories and beaded clothing. If there are many design accessories on the clothes, such as sequins and beads, if they are washed with a washing machine, the sequins and handmade beads will easily fall off due to friction during the stirring process of the washing machine, which will not only destroy the original design of the clothes, but also Will jam the washing machine. In addition, this type of clothing is also not allowed to be ironed.
bra. Bras have been designed and shaped, and the machine-washed stirring and tumbling process can easily deform the bra. In addition, bras are personal clothing. When it is machine-washed with other clothing, bacteria and detergents remaining in other clothing will adhere to it, which can easily lead to skin allergies and gynecological diseases. Therefore, the bra must be washed separately by hand and cannot be wrung out.
Clothes stained with gasoline. When clothes are stained with flammable and explosive substances such as gasoline, do not wash them in the washing machine. When the washing machine starts and runs, it will produce electric sparks. When it meets the mixed combustible gas emitted by gasoline, it is likely to explode. In addition, the diffusion of gasoline will also corrode the washing machine.
down jacket. Down jackets are mainly filled with poultry fluff, which has poor fiber strength and is not resistant to rubbing. If it is washed in a washing machine, the down is easily broken or dislodged. The rotating force of the washing machine will also cause the down to curl and clump. It is recommended that down jackets are best washed and brushed by hand. After washing, you need to tap to disperse the down.
