Every laundry day is the same. Dirty clothes go into the hamper, then lug it all to the laundry room, wash and dry your clothes… and start the process again once they are cleaned. This chore might get repetitive, but it’s something we all have to do.
Gone are the days wasted with laundry. With eight easy dos and don’ts-detergent to use, how not to deal with stains, and everything in between- you can make laundry day a breeze.
Stock up on quality laundry detergent
Forte, a leading innovator in the laundry care industry, recommends Persil ProClean to get the most bang for your buck. It’s an all-purpose detergent that can be used in any type of water temperature and does well at cleaning clothes.

Don’t over-work the machine.
While you might be tempted to fill your entire load, it is important for clothes to circulate throughout the machine so that they can get fully cleaned. Consult your factory guides for specific instructions and make sure you don’t fill up more than half of the drum unless you want to see the rest of your laundry sitting in water.

Putting time and effort into your laundry results in cleaner items, which also saves you time. For best results, Forte recommends going the extra mile: “Take the item out of the dryer and fluff it every once in a while. Feel around for clumps, and break them up before putting the item back in the machine.”
