Tips for optimizing your laundry routine

Published on May 4, 2023 at 15:10

Although dreaded by many (hey, parents!), doing laundry is a necessary chore that needs to be done regularly. While it may not be the most exciting task on our to-do list, keeping our clothes clean is important in order to feel our best. Luckily, there are always ways to improve your laundry routine and make the process more efficient and enjoyable!

Step 1: Selecting the right laundry detergent

Whether you prefer liquid detergent or detergent pods, Gain has a laundry product to suit your needs. Available in a variety of formats, all you have to do is choose either liquid or pod option with your favourite fragrance!

Gain - Liquid Laundry Detergent

Not surprisingly, liquid detergent is a simple and effective option, especially when it comes to grease stains, oil stains, and makeup stains! If your garment is stained, use the liquid detergent as a pre-treatment and pour it directly onto the affected area. Then, scrub and let the laundry detergent sit before putting the garment in the washing machine. 

Pro tip

Liquid laundry detergent is a useful pre-treatment solution for removing a stubborn mascara stain.

Gain Original Flings Laundry Detergent Pods 3-in-1

Detergent pods are gaining in popularity and are the go-to of busy people! Simply throw a pod (or several, depending on the size of the load) in the washer, and voila. They're simple, convenient, and dissolve in both hot and cold water. Gain Original Flings Laundry Detergent Pods are a 3-in-1 solution, combining a detergent, Oxi Boost, and Febreze freshness. It's a simple and effective option!

Remember: before choosing your laundry detergent, it's important to check the labels of your garments to make sure that they can be machine-washed. You must also respect the indicated dosage according to the size of your load.

Step 3: Protecting your fabrics

Did you know that fabric softener does more than just add softness and suppleness to your fabrics?

Downy fabric softener will make your clothes suppler while helping to keep their original shape. Using a laundry softener will also help prevent fading, as well as reduce fuzzing and pilling on clothes.

Step 4: Avoiding static

Bounce Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets

Bounce is here to prove otherwise; not only do these dryer sheets help dry your garments faster and more efficiently, they also do wonders to minimize creases in clothing and reduce static electricity. And that's not all! Fabric softeners can also fight odours as well as soften your fabrics. Your clothes will feel like a comfy, fuzzy cloud. For those with sensitive skin, don't worry: they're gentle enough for you!
