Always use stain treater on soiled clothes before washing - especially if you have kids!
Use bleach on white socks to keep them that way.
Use fabric softener.
Take clothes out of dryer as soon as they're done to avoid wrinkling.
Don't overload washer.
Keep dryer lint screen clean.
Use gentle cycle for delicates.
Common sense: Keep whites, colors, delicates, and sheets and towels separate.
