Clothing is an integral part of human being, and it helps protect us from the elements of nature. Clothing does not just mean the clothes you wear, but it also means the other clothes like your bed sheets, quilts, curtains, towels, and much more.
Each piece of clothing plays an important role in protecting you in different ways, and you, in turn, protect them by washing them and cleaning them. Irregular or incorrect washing of clothes and linen can even contribute to allergies, mould and breeding of dust mites!
However, have you ever wondered if you are washing your clothes right? Everybody does laundry; some do it every other day while some have a weekly laundry day? But the basic thing is each piece of clothing in your wardrobe is different and is made of different material.
Most of us have a misconception about washing clothes and we either wash a cloth too frequently or rarely, which can be harmful to the clothes and shorten its lifespan. For example, you need not wash your jeans after every wear, while you need to wash your towel once in every two days. 

Love2Laundry.com shares an infographic detailing the frequency at which you must wash each of your clothes so that you can take good care of them and they will be long lasting for you. You can view the infographic here. (Remember to click on the image to magnify)

Quick Facts

  1. Running a dehumidifier where your laundry is drying will help dry your laundry quickly and efficiently while using very little energy. It will also prevent condensation and mould-growth. A dehumidifier uses up to 80% less electricity than a tumble dryer, and comes with all other benefits, including getting rid of dust, dust mites, viruses, mould, bacteria and odours.
  2. Dust mites require relatively high levels of humidity to survive (around 80% humidity). By running a dehumidifier, such as the Meaco 12L or 20L Low-Energy or Meaco DD8L Zambezi Dehumidifiers, and bringing the humidity down, you will make the conditions unfavourable for dust mites to survive.
