Some clothes and materials should be pre-washed to give them
the desired soft, clean and smooth feel as when you first purchased them.
Pre-wash and quick treatments are best for soaking new
clothes, or an alternative for pre-treating heavily soiled clothes. This is
stage one of a two-stage wash cycle.
Get rid of unseen stains that lie deep in the garment and
then simply throw it in for a quick wash to make sure that each and every fibre
is now free of stubborn stains. Instead of putting them in a lengthy wash,
simply use each stain’s quick pre-treatment followed by a Quick Wash. This will
save you precious time to spend with your loved ones.
While your baby is growing, their immune systems aren’t
quite as strong as they should be, so prewashing and treating new baby clothes
is like washing fruit before you eat it – especially when buying new clothes.
A light hand-wash in some cold water with an extra-gentle
detergent like OMO Hand Wash Gentle on Hands is perfect as a pre-treatment. Pop
it straight into a Quick Wash after to free it of any lingering germs.
The purpose of this process is to remove any impurities that
could cause harm to the strength of the fabric as well as your family’s health.
OMO Auto’s unique Oxybleach formula gives the fabric room to breathe and absorb
the detergent when you put it in for a Quick Wash. An easy way to ensure that
your cotton garments stay safe from harm is to place the garment in cold water,
mixed with a little vinegar. Squeeze this out and toss it in your washing
machine for a Quick Wash.
There are few things as soft, smooth and comfortable as
freshly washed silk sheets. They caress the skin gently, so it’s important to
maintain the original integrity of this fabric to ensure a lifetime of comfort.
For the first few washes, wash your sheets by
hand. Not only will this soften the fibres but it will also protect its
trademark glow and sheen. Use lukewarm water and a soft and caring washing
powder like OMO Hand Wash Powder with a Touch of Comfort. Let your sheets soak
before hanging them out to dry.
