SAMSUNG shares some wash-day hacks – and the chance to get 80 free washes with OMO, find out how you can cash in!

As we face an exceptionally chilly winter in extra layers of clothing and more of us are working and studying from home, staying ahead of the laundry pile is made easier with a few helpful tips from SAMSUNG:

Do laundry more often

If doing the laundry isn’t one of your favourite activities, rather do small bundles more frequently instead of saving up massive wash loads to do at one time. You can also claim some of this time for yourself by listening to an audiobook or music while you wash, hang and fold your laundry.

Stain removal wipes

Spills at meal times do happen, but instead of tackling ingrained stains on laundry day, there’s an easier way. Apply a stain removal wipe soon after a spill, this will minimise the effort on laundry day and will preserve your favourite garments.

Avoid shrinkage

Cotton fabrics can safely undergo a hot wash cycle. For everything else check the advisory labels attached. This will also help you determine whether the colours need special care not to run. Always ensure that you programme your machine for a cold wash and the right setting to suit the load and the clothing you’re washing.

Pre-sort laundry into baskets

A simple solution is to use a three- or four-bin laundry sorting system, tossing clothes into the appropriate bin from the start. Whether you’re doing separate colour loads or one person’s laundry at a time to avoid searching for all their clothing items afterwards, this is a great solution.

Put socks in mesh bags

The idea here is that each person puts their socks into a mesh bag, zips it up and tosses it in the laundry. When the bags come out of the machine, the socks are all together and ready to be put on the line, side-by-side.

Bonus tip:

SAMSUNG has partnered with OMO, a brand also committed to enhanced hygiene and cleaning performance. Now, when you buy a qualifying SAMSUNG top loader or front loader you get up to 80 FREE washes of OMO Auto. SAMSUNG’s Digital Inverter top loaders and front loaders include features like Hygiene Steam, which gives your clothes a deep, hygienic clean, EcoBubble™ that generates cleansing bubbles to penetrate fabrics and remove dirt faster – as well as AddWash™, which lets you quickly add forgotten clothes after your cycle has already started.

With all these features and a handy hamper from Omo, this winter just got a lot better.
