Doing the Laundry
By Cathy Pearl
1 You have a pile of dirty clothes in your room. All of your favorite clothes are dirty and you have nothing to wear. What do you do now? Well, if you are like most people, it means you will have to do some laundry.
2 The first thing you need to do is sort the clothes. You can't put a red sock in with white clothes. All of the clothes could turn pink. You should have a white load, a dark load, and a colored load. When you're sorting the clothes, close all of the zippers. Zippers can snag or tear other clothes. You should also check all the pockets of the clothes. There is nothing messier than washing a tissue or a piece of paper.
3 Check all of the clothes to see if there are any stains on them. If there are, pretreat them with laundry detergent or a stain remover. Make sure that you read the directions on whatever product that you use. You don't want to ruin your favorite shirt trying to get the ketchup stain out of it!
4 Start to fill the washing machine next. To save money and energy, most clothes can be washed with cold water. If the clothes are very dirty, hot water is usually best. Be very careful to wash bright colors, like red, only in cold water. Warm water can make these colors run or fade into other colors.
