The British «cleaning expert» explained to the British that in the context of energy crisis, it makes no sense to turn on the washing machine — clothes that smells bad should be hung on the sun, and those that do not stink like child’s clothes and underpants should not be washed at all.
The top tips:
✅ Instead of drying: “Get some towels and lay your items on top – then put another towel over them, roll it up tightly and then unroll. The water will transfer to the towels and your items will dry.»
✅ Instead of washing: “Hang clothes that smell of anything strong outside on a sunny day – the UV rays of the sun are great at flushing out bacteria and smells. Or, use a steamer or iron over the clothes – this will also get rid of the smells by loosening fibres in the fabric, which kills odorous bacteria.»
✅ Do not wash baby clothes: “Kids don’t smell as much as adults so they can go around in their clothes for longer. If they spill food on them, it should just be wiped off with a damp cloth as quickly as possible before it can settle into the material. But there’s no need to put the washing machine on for any surface spills”.
✅ Wiping, not washing: “plain water and a clean cloth will do the job on anything stained. Diluted Fairy washing up liquid is also fantastic at getting all kinds of stains out of your clothes”.
✅ Your germs are yours friend: “any bacteria on your clothing is that they are your own germs – and you are not going to come to any harm from them. So, if it doesn’t smell and it’s not grubby, don’t wash it!»
✅ Panties of the Year: «By using panty liners it means that you can keep your pants fresher for much longer – so then you can change your knickers every other day.»
