  • The first and most important step is of course washing. The crucial factors that affect the effectiveness of that process are for example the temperature of water and detergents used to clean clothes.
  • Apart from that there’s a process called rinsing. In order to remove detergent after washing. Most devises conduct a few rinse processes. However, as it’s very unfriendly towards the environment, because a great deal of water is uses, number of rinse processes should be limited.
  • Moreover there is also a process of spinning. As you probably know, the goal is to remove as much water from clothes as possible. Though, the more power we put into spinning, the more likely our clothes will be damaged.
  • Maintenance is also a very important step. The fact is that washing in most cases have a lot to do with dirt. As a result, there is plenty of bacteria in the water after washing.
