Always wash similar weights/types of fabrics together.

Imagine the difference in weight between a large absorbent cotton bath towel soaked with water and a less absorbent polyester pillowcase.

Make sure the clothing is balanced left/right and front/back.

Think of the tub as a big deep pie. Put items into “pie-slice” slots.

Load them dry (if wet resist the urge to fill the machine too much).

o not stuff or cram the clothing down.

If the washer is too full, there’s more rubbing/abrasion on the clothes, which dulls the fabric/colors.

So, don’t overload, and use the right amount of water for the load.

It is important to allow the clothing to fall in under its own weight and to allow it to move around freely through the water for best cleaning results (heavier items on the bottom).
